A look back at our most recent Earth Day Celebration!
Children participated and learned through a passport activity that took them through our tour, including: a device that revealed how plants clean the air, composting, a wormy delight, planting their own food, and “aquaponics”, showing how water supports life with some fishy friends! With this passport in hand, they were on their way to becoming Young Citizen Scientists! It was a bee-utiful day and we were are buzzing with excitement!

We have an upcoming event to help prepare our youngsters for the upcoming school year! We are hosting Peace & Unity for Our Community‘s backpack drive. This is an annual school giveaway. Along with the backpacks, there will be a supplies table to fulfill all the necessities of the coming school year.
The only requirement: child(ren) must be present in order for supplies to be picked up.
Let’s make it a fun family event for all! It is being held 10am to 1pm on August 18th. We will have music and delicious food (including a fruit salad and BBQ). Enjoy the festivities, take a pause in the garden, and get together with your neighbors!
And be on the look-out for another exciting upcoming event: Earth’s nothing without ART. A painting spectacle to help beautify and organize the garden with signs. Be on the look out for the Save the Date!

Ocean View Growing Grounds hosted the Global Food Initiative Fellows who are representatives from all of the University of California campuses. It was a great day to describe what the purpose and effect the garden does for our community!
