Seed To Table Program: Our core educational program is a year-round K-5th grade curriculum of outdoor garden-based learning. 120 experiential lessons encompass everything a student can learn from planting, tending, harvesting, studying, cooking, and eating plants. Tailored to the Southern California growing season and aligned with both Common Core and California State standards, each grade focuses on a unique science theme, in addition to units in literacy and math. The school’s classroom teachers do the “getting ready” portion of each lesson, and we provide a Garden Coordinator to teach the hands-on outdoor portion. Follow-up activities foster deeper reinforcement and learning. Students harvest and prepare seasonal recipes using tools like solar ovens and bicycle blenders. We use the process of cooking not only to develop healthy eating habits but primarily as an engaging platform for scientific inquiry and experimentation. At the end of the 6-year program, students emerge with a multidisciplinary understanding of environmental processes and tools for the real-world engagement in their surrounding communities.

We will create a community of students, parents, teachers, and all school staff that is engaged in learning about ways to take care of ourselves and each other by creating a garden together and learning about how to better care for our environment.

We will build a garden in the back yard of the school that is fenced to keep out the deer that are prevalent eaters here, with raised beds to be used for planting in the spring of 2018. The garden will be built by parent volunteers from our school, including members of the newly formed Green Committee. The design for the garden will be a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, and children.

Our project will focus on making our area outside of our classroom more beautiful and safe. Many of our students live in apartments and do not have gardens at home. We want to continue to have this beautiful outdoor area where students can learn about growing vegetables and fruits but we need to replace some of the planters and benches because they are very old. This grant will allow us to continue to have this valuable space for our students.

We are rehabilitating 6 raised garden beds at the Zoller School and also planting a butterfly garden outside the preschool and kindergarten classrooms.

It will help the community and people that dont have much food.

This garden will produce food for the community. These crops will go to the local food pantry, community kitchen, and senior center, as well as other places that provide food for those who need it. To achieve this, I will have to build an outdoor garden that will be functional during the cold months in New England.

Our project will be that we set up a worm farm in our classroom. We will compost the remains of our snacks to increase the good fertile soil and then put that soil in our school garden. The soil will help promote growth of the vegetables that are being grown to help feed those in need in our community.

The children will attain a recipe for the treats from the sanctuary and bake special healthy treats for the farm animals in February. They will take a field trip to the sanctuary and feed some to the 50 or more injured farm animals, and tour their facility. This close up interaction with the animals, as well as the information learned on the tour will teach the children more about the value of domesticated animals. The children will learn the needs of animals are similar to their own.
United States
Our project will educate the student body on vegan/vegetarian diets by handing out free vegan samples so people can get an idea of what vegans eat and handing out vegan pamphlets and recipes to try at home or with their families. We will also be giving out vegan nutrition guides to people so those who are interested in eating less meat can have a resource of knowledge available to them.
