Thanks to funds from the District 1 Office of SF Supervisor Supervisor Sandra Fewer and Supervisor Eric Mar in 2015-2016 andCAN! has been able to offer George Washington High School (GWHS) students a chance to cultivate (and eat) their own organic vegetables and even honey.
Students participate in habitat restoration garden activities on campus as well as planning culturally engaging activities for fellow students, staff and the larger community to become more physically active, healthy and earth-conscious. George Washington High School is a huge campus (4 city blocks) and the school boasts over 2,300 students. CAN! is planting roots at George Washington High, cultivating youth leadership and expanding into the Richmond District with the Richmond District Sidewalk Garden Project. With the CAN! Green Jobs program, GWHS students have performed outreach for the Richmond District Sidewalk Garden Project while learning valuable skills in outreach, community engagement, communication, planning, design and horticulture.
Support the CAN! garden programs today and help us expand at GWHS.
