Group Description

Vision Statement for OUSD School Garden Program

The OUSD School Garden Council’s goal is to establish a garden in every school.

School gardens provide urban children access to nature, and reflect each child’s inherent right to the following:

• Access to healthy, locally produced food
• Understanding of food systems and the natural cycle
• Social, economic and health justice
• Hands-on alternatives to testing-based instruction
• Self-reliance and character building opportunities
• Connection to local community

Through school gardens, students become stewards of the environment and gain a stake in the community and the world. This empowers them to discover the connection between personal health, education and opportunity.
