“Our students deserve every chance to grow strong mentally and physically. A garden will give our community tools to demonstrate science, nutrition, physical activity, math, language arts, social studies, and many more lessons.”~Ana Marie Cervantes

Our Story

The majority of our students come from agricultural families. Our school is also implanted between some of Southern California’s biggest nurseries and farms. Despite these opportunities very few are educated on proper nutrition, health, and garden success. Our students deserve every chance to grow strong mentally and physically. A garden will give our staff the tools to demonstrate science, nutrition, physical activity, math, language arts, social studies, and many more lessons. Not only do we hope these lessons will assist our students, we hope they will transcend into their families and improve their quality of living as well.
