Special Offer for Los Altos and Mountain View Whisman School District Families and docents to create edible gardens at Home
Thousands of children from the Los Altos and Mountain View Whisman School District are experiencing what it's like to plant, tend, harvest and eat food they are growing at the school's edible gardens through Living Classroom and lunchtime garden clubs. You can continue this experience at home through creating edible raised beds in your yard or patios and involve the whole family in growing fresh fruits and vegetables. A new local start up, Edible Urban Farm Company, will donate 10% to Living Classroom for families from the Los Altos and Mountain View Whisman School Districts or docents.
Edible Urban Farm Company installs and maintains organic vegetable gardens throughout Silicon Valley. Started in 2013, they have installed over 120 raised beds & brought countless numbers of unused raised beds back into production. They will come by for a consultation, give you a checklist of in-season vegetables to choose what you would like to be growing, and do all of the heavy lifting to leave you with your own vegetable garden. If you need a bit more help, they will come back weekly to take care of everything related to your vegetable garden & leave the harvest on your doorstep.
Kamila's green thumb grew during her time working at Santa Clara University's 1/2 acre urban farm, The Forge. There, she wondered why more people weren't turning their thirsty, unproductive lawns into beautiful vegetable gardens & she decided to do something about it. Brendan has extensive experience teaching little ones how to be future urban farmers through his work at the California Native Garden Foundation's urban farming camp.
