Windsor High School
GSE Windsor students have the pleasure of working in a nearby garden at Cali Calmecac K-8 Bilingual Academy. A group of GSE students started this garden five years ago, and added unique features such as horseshoe-shaped beds and an herb spiral. GSE Windsor students have the opportunity to learn about permaculture techniques in the garden, as well as address community issues by partnering with organizations such as Windsor Wellness Partnership and the Center for Social and Environmental Stewardship.

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.
