Description

Quick Overview: Weeding, harvesting, and help cleaning up the raised beds.

Mission or Broader Program Description: 

The Pasadena Educational Foundation is working with community partners to grow our school-community garden program that provides outdoor classroom space for students to learn about nutrition, healthy eating, science, and other subjects. PUSD’s school-community gardens are managed by a full-time Master Gardener, who will manage the garden clean-up.

Produce grown in the organic school-community gardens is being incorporated into school cafeteria offerings. USDA named PUSD a model program for management, innovation, and impact in promoting healthier lifestyles.

Impact: Did you know there are 18 edible gardens at Pasadena Unified School Distirct Schools that produce 1,000's of pounds of fruits and vegetables as part of the Farm to School Program? There are! We are looking for some volunteer support to keep it going and make it a community effort.

Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities: We are looking for individuals and teams of volunteers to help us sustain these wonderful gardens.
