Analy High School
GSE began at Analy 10 years ago and continues to have a strong following to this day. GSE students at Analy work hard to maintain the Jeremiah Chass Memorial Garden on campus, as well as a ¼ acre community garden in the heart of Sebastopol. The students are passionate about immersing themselves in the community and partnering with organizations to address local issues. In 2017, the GSE students at Analy partnered with local climate action group 350Sonoma to develop a compost and recycling plan to reduce campus waste. The program is completely student-led and has about 70 volunteers today.
The GSE club at Analy meets Mondays at lunch in room L1, and has garden workdays Mondays after school at the Village Park garden and Thursdays after school on campus.
