Community Garden and Outdoor Classroom
Established interactive school garden and outdoor learning-space used by 250 public school students. Taught low-water urban farming practices and contemporary food issues. Created regular after school gardening program and student vegetable CSA.
As an Urban Farming instructor I worked over the course of three years to develop a consistent partnership between the students of City High and the growing community farm of Las Milpitas. Our goal was to start a small group of young farmers and build a small CSA for the students and teachers of City High School.
Our students were asked to be consultants for the Joel Valdez Main Library's new Seed Library. This is a student's promotion for the new community resource.
