Contra Costa County Program Coordinator
Global Student Embassy at Las Lomas
In 2013 GSE was approached by a Junior at Las Lomas to build a garden. Within a few months, 6 redwood garden beds were built by volunteers and now grow a few hundred pounds of vegetables for donation each year. In 2014, GSE began partnering with the Foods 101 classes to create a farm to fork program where students can learn about healthy eating and sustainable farming while also cooking delicious meals.
The community is a place of the highest importance. I have learned to be more honest and helpful within a group; providing constructive criticism and doing my share. Knowing how to work together is what makes a community.Jamison Burks
