Project Description:

Common Vision supports schools and districts to cultivate outdoor garden learning spaces that inspire integrated academic learning, environmental education, wellness, character development, cohesive cross-cultural community involvement, and long-term earth stewardship. These school gardens are sustainable, effective models for equitable education and are essential to growing the whole child, authentic community, and a healthy planet. The grant funds will defray work with Hoover Elementary (Oakland Unified School District), Mira Vista Elementary (West Contra Costa County Unified School District) and Ruby Bridges Elementary (Alameda Unified School District) to plant fruit trees on schools grounds, combining green infrastructure to filter and reduce stormwater runoff with environmental education and growing food for the community.
