Thank you, CAA, Youth Build, Students, Families and Community for a wonderful, productive Earth Day and Work Day in the garden! As poet Gary Snyder stated, "Nature is not a place. It is home." We agree!
Master Gardeners in training through the UC Cooperative Extension program get a first hand look at a school garden. We hope that some of these trainees will be future teachers and volunteers with Seeds to Plate!
UCLA Service Learning Students help serve an apple taste test to the students. Thanks for all your help!
In June, 2016, Seeds to Plate, the Gjelina Volunteer Program, Mark Twain Middle School and the Venice Boys and Girls Club teamed up to 20 students with a hands-on workshop to create their own restaurant. They designed their menu, learned to cooked an appetizer, entree and dessert, divided themselves into front of house and back of house staff, and served their family a three course meal in Mark Twain's Secret Garden!
Thanks to the Creative Artists' Agency for their wonderful effort working in the garden!
Fifty wonderful students from UCLA worked in the hot sun digging out weeds in the Seeds to Plate school garden paths and beds to prepare them for the students' fall planting season!
