Agua Caliente Elementary

Our program at Agua Caliente Elementary School (ACES) is brand new, as of 2017. Although the school has had a garden for nearly a decade, it has not been highly cultivated. Under a new wellness coordinator and thanks to several grants, ACES is determined to establish a central school garden. The school's mission is a primary focus on health and wellness, with the garden playing a central role in education, socialization and inspiration.

ACES serves elementary school students from diverse ethnic and educational backgrounds in an all-inclusive hands-on education system. 

Una escuela de colores

Our mission is to seek that our communities have access to food education, so that this can provide a life filled with wellbeing and in turn permeate this culture in the immediate family.

Although we have had the opportunity to work for 5 years with public and private schools this time we will start working on a pilot program within a public school that is located in a marginalized area, this school has around 180 children from kindergarten to primary school
