The goal of our Rooted in Community Fundraiser is to raise $10,000 for garden-based education in San Luis Obispo County and we need your help to continue to grow! Get involved now through December 3rd.
Because gardens change lives. We at One Cool Earth believe every child deserves a place to grow. If you look in your past you might have had a parent, grandparent or aunt who introduced you to a garden or the outdoors. You might hold onto those memories fondly. Today more kids than ever live in cities and are becoming disconnected from their food and their environment. We are changing that by providing opportunities for kids to connect with their food and environment on their own school campus during the school day. Using the garden as an outdoor classroom we have reached an average of 7,000 kids each year the past 3 years. Our garden educators teach standards-aligned lessons that improve nutrition and academics. If you believe kids should be happy, healthy and smart, donate today and will help you get growing by providing a free root vegetable seed packet and be entered in a drawing for a weekly prize!

How We Benefit Children & Youth
Earth Genius | Our Garden-Based Programming
Evidence-Based Programming: We look to research to engage students in healthy eating and academic success, using gardens as learning labs, focusing on food, waste, and how the Earth sustains life.
Standard-Linked Lessons: Our grade-level appropriate lessons integrate Next Generation Science Standards including connecting Physical Science, Life Science, Earth and Space Science, and Engineering Design.
Teacher Support: Our educators help teachers and staff use the garden as a teaching tool, providing lesson modeling, training, materials, curriculum and community resources.
