Garden Groundbreaking

On Saturday, April 25th, parents and community members gathered at San Lorenzo HS for a workshop on building an Urban School Garden. The workshop is part of series of school garden trainings sponsored by Kaiser Permanente, Alameda County Office of Education, Network for a Healthy California, and University of California County Extension.

The workshop culminated in a raised-bed demonstration garden being built at San Lorenzo High School. The garden will be maintained by Helen Rowell’s Transition Students.

Students Create the Small Farm

Fresh Crew Interns, science, language, and ELA classes have all contributed to building the new farm at San Lorenzo High.  Students have

  • planned what crops they wanted to grow
  • started their own seeds
  • learned soil management techniques
  • and helped plan the overall design

Crops include corn, watermelon, potatoes, tomatoes, and strawberries.  Come and see the vibrant growth happening at San Lorenzo High!
