Gardner Academy School Garden Program
Gardner's garden is the school garden BUG established at Gardner Academy (San Jose Unified School District). Our primary goal is to develop a sustainable model for school gardens for under-resourced schools in marginalized communities. BUG is working with teachers, administrators and parents to design, build, and maintain the garden and has an ongoing garden based education program at Gardner that works with classes for eight week sessions and collaborates with La Estrella after school program to provide garden activities one afternoon a week.
Working with students, teachers, parents and volunteers, BUG has built and maintains a garden for Gardner Academy. Periodic workdays are held on weekends and a core group of parents, teachers and community members has been established to steward the garden.
