Garden Clubs and Food Forests
Through Garden Clubs and Food Forests, five Ojai elementary schools are able to provide a permaculture based, edible learnscape for students in grades K-6. These organic school gardens span 10,000 square feet overall. Food for Thought Ojai, the organization that brings these gardens to life, educates students in grades K-6 with a focus on topics such as agriculture, nutrition, and food education. Students learn how to grow food, which enables them to understand the impact that food scarcity has on the community.
