We are excited to leverage the expertise of Chelle Wingeleth, Cathy Procopio, and Cynthia Perez Gerhart as we grow into more schools and community sites in Long Beach. This year we will reach more than 3,000 students with our unique, award-winning, experiential garden program. That's more than 22,000 student hours spent working with heads and hands to understand, connect with, and explore our natural world.
Last week we celebrated our new Board of Directors in true Ground Education style - attending a farm-to-table fundraiser for The Growing Experience, another local, like-minded non-profit that maintains healthy gardens for and alongside North Long Beach residents. It was a beautiful evening on the farm, with local chefs like Primal Alchemy's Chef Paul treating us to a seasonal feast.
