THE VALUE OF OUR SCHOOL GARDENS
Schools are at the heart of every community so Good Neighbor Gardens works with teachers, parents, and administrators to bring edible gardens to campus. We get kids outdoors to learn about food production, natural science, and engineering. Through our experiential curriculum, our farm hands nurture compassionate young stewards of the land.
The food harvested at each school goes directly to the cafeteria for students to eat. Good Neighbor Gardens volunteers then distribute the surplus harvest to subscribers in the surrounding community.
Good Neighbor Gardens has been delighted to bring garden education to the following schools:
Washington Elementary, Roosevelt Middle School, Loma Portal Elementary, Jerabek Elementary, Miramar Ranch Elementary, Valencia Park Elementary, Hawking Charter School, Innovation Academy.
