School Garden Project
We are proud to be part of efforts to build a strong connection with local schools. CESOSS first started working with local elementary schools back in 2014. Our intent is to reconnect schools, students, and families with local agricultural traditions that includes small farming, gardening, and the importance of acequias in our community. Since then we piloted school-based farmer's markets held at local elementary schools, helped to establish and upkeep a school garden at Dolores Gonzales Elementary, have coordinated events and workshops at local elementary schools, and have worked with teachers to bring lessons to their classes.
