The Madonna Well-Med Children/Senior Garden

Our goal for our community is to shift the way our children and families see food and are able to access fresh fruits and vegetables. We include healthy activities and exercise. We strongly believe what we put in our bodies affects not only our physical health but our mental health. We envision a Westside with lower rates of obesity, heart disease and diabetes through educating the youth about growing food and preparing their harvests for their families. We have been able to successfully supplement 50% of the lunches and snacks via the garden for our community residents.

Joseph Sears School

The Joseph Sears School Outdoor Classroom provides students with an outdoor space for hands-on exploration, inquiry, discovery and garden-based learning in all grades K-8 in areas of practical arts, core subjects, social emotional, and health. Surrounded by native plants, butterfly and rain gardens, vegetable and herb beds, fruit bushes and trees, students develop an understanding and curiosity about the natural world. In addition during practical arts classes, students develop an understanding of where our food comes from with the farm-to-table concept - plant, harvest, eat (and enjoy!).

We farm to educate and train through gardens and greenhouses. We cultivate leadership through year round programming focused on planting, growing, preparing and distributing the food we grow.
