Because gardens produce healthier food. Only 2% of American children eat enough fruits and vegetables, and 1 in 3 American children born after 2000 is at risk for Type II diabetes. A garden is an introduction to the real, healthy food students and families need access to.
Because gardens can help fix America's nature deficit. With more than 80% of Americans living in cities and suburbs, we need to work harder than ever to teach the values of natural processes.
Because gardens are a living laboratory for education. Not just healthy food—a lesson on what producing healthy food requires. Not just exposure to nature—a way for children to literally harvest the fruits of their labor.
A True Seed Investment
For as little as $10, you can help our community reap all the benefits an urban farm has to offer. In just 39 days, we plan to raise $2500; to feed, teach, and inspire people in our community. Here are a few things the we plan to do with your donations at the Warren Lane Urban Garden:
- Create an on-campus space where teachers can provide hands-on activities that engage the students in science, health, and environmentalism.
- Community events that include structured gardening class activities for parents, & local residents to enjoy.
- Chicken coops for egg harvesting; this can't be a farm without chickens!
- Create a sustainable space but using solar power, building with sustainable materials, and using aquaponics.
The Warren Lane Urban Farm will serve as the model for what the rest of our 22 schools in the Inglewood Unified School District can do to change Inglewood, CA from a food desert to a healthy food oasis. Please donate today to make this project come to life.
