CommunityGrows, a project of the Tides Center

CommunityGrows, a project of the Tides Center, cultivates healthy youth through growing gardens in diverse, low-income communities. CommunityGrows requests an SFPA Action Grant to support hands-on environmental education classes for all 265 K-5th grade children who attend John Muir Elementary School in San Francisco’s Western Addition neighborhood. Classes will take place between August 2017 and May 2018 in the Community Learning Garden at Koshland Park, one block from the school. The majority of students who attend John Muir Elementary are socioeconomically disadvantaged - more than 75% qualify for free or reduced-price school meals - and more than 96% are students of color.
