Montgomery High School


GSE Montgomery students work closely with the Global Student club on campus to promote awareness of cultural diversity across campus. The Advanced Sustainable Practices class worked closely with GSE last year to renovate the garden, mulching the entire garden space and maintaining weeds. The students hope to install raised beds that are wheelchair-accessible to make the garden more inclusive.

Meet Your Educator, Harlie Rankin


Harlie is from Washington and graduated from Seattle University with a BA in Environmental Studies focusing on Urban Sustainability, and minors in Spanish and Public Affairs. She was first introduced to Global Student Embassy when she went on one of our trips to Bahía, Ecuador with her university. Harlie went on to work as an Exchange Coordinator in Ecuador, leading several trips in Bahia and Cuenca.

Harlie now works with four high schools and, most notably, the Village Park garden, a 1/2 acre community garden in the heart of Sebastopol. The Sonoma GSE program is deeply rooted in the county’s unique agricultural and environmental leadership network, and students work closely with other organizations to best address issues in the community.  Harlie is passionate about raising up the leaders of tomorrow and best equipping them for the environmental and social challenges that lie ahead.
