Thank you to our supporters!
We have had the wonderful opportunity to work with the following groups at the Edible Schoolyard Project Community Farm and with our organic Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Food Box program:
Changeist has been partnering with ESYP Stockton since the fall of 2020. Together we worked with the students at Taylor Leadership Academy in South Stockton. Chef Liesha and the interns from Changeist taught a weekly cooking class to the students in the after school program. This year we expanded our partnership from the classroom to include work on the farm. We have plans to continue to collaborate on community events in the near future.
Improve Your Tomorrow (IYT)
IYT at McNair High School in Lodi assisted ESYP Stockton in distributing organic CSA boxes this summer which sparked a larger partnership this fall. The students are looking forward to monthly farm visits and hands-on cooking classes starting soon. We will meet monthly to learn new recipes and get hands in the soil at our farm.
Discovery Challenge Academy
Discovery Challenge Academy in Lathrop brought 30 students to the farm to assist in farm maintenance this month. The students will come each Saturday to help plot holders and our team with crop planting and maintenance of the farm.
4H of San Joaquin County
The San Joaquin County Ambassador Alijah Pacheco officially requested to become partners with Edible Schoolyard Project Stockton. We are currently in the process of developing a master calendar of events and we are looking forward to engaging with the UCANR community this year.
A portion of the work taking place is supported by California Strategic Growth Council’s Transformative Climate Communities Program with funds from California Climate Investments, a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment – particularly in disadvantaged communities.
