2014 here we come…

A sighting of our local garden hawk!

7th and 8th Grade students participate in a conversation with local non-profit organization, Poder (http://www.tides.org/community/project-directory/show/project/single/title/poder/) about planning a community garden in Crocker-Amazon. They shared ideas, experiences and feedback. It was a great opportunity to think through all the planning it will take to complete their own independent projects for next semester. Some projects include a mural and sound barrier for the Excelsior Ave fence, a bee hive, a living wall, a bird house, garden sculptures and benches with planters. We will keep you posted as to our progress.

Happy lettuce- one of our many green winter crops:


SFC neighbors gather on a Sunny winter Saturday to plant 3 trees on the school campus. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and we really appreciate all their help. One couple even donated a truckload of dirt for a new garden bed! Thank you also to Friends of the Urban Forest (http://fuf.net/) who made this all possible. Come get to know our trees (each tree is labeled with species) and give them some love so that they can set strong roots, grow and thrive along with our students at SFC.
