Epic Middle School Organic Gardening Club
Organized by: Javier Torres
Hello! My name is Javier Torres. I am a Guide/Teacher resident at Epic Middle School in Oakland, CA. Epic middle school is a new public charter school that serves a humble and loving community in Oakland, CA. I have embarked in starting the first organic gardening club at Epic middle school. Epic Middle School is located in the heart of East Oakland, a traditionally underserved community that lacks in community gardens. Students here at Epic are excited to change the status quo by launching a garden with the hopes of eventually expanding their knowledge beyond the school boundaries. Funding has posed a barrier for the program. We are in dire need of tools and other gardening materials to make the garden a reality. Any help is deeply appreciated. Thank you for your time.
