One Cool Earth
One Cool Earth (OCE), a 501(c)3 nonprofit, operates exclusively in San Luis Obispo County. OCE believes that every child deserves a place to grow--physically, personally, and intellectually. Our school garden program, Earth Genius, creates and operates gardens as learning labs that power healthy, happy and smart youth. We focus on creating real impacts in childhood health, academics, and wellbeing using school gardens.
The Earth Genius program currently operates at 18 schools in Oceano, Arroyo Grande, Cambria, Shandon, Atascadero and Paso Robles, reaching over 7000 students annually. We strive to support thriving school garden programs at all 43 elementary schools in San Luis Obispo County by 2020.
