Plant Justice at San Antonio High School program is a hands-on, interdisciplinary class focused on building community around sustainable food. Since Fall 2010, students have planted, maintained, and harvested over 4,000 square feet of raised bed gardens and a fruit orchard year round. The class educates students both inside and outside the classroom by discussing articles and watching videos related to current food justice, health, and environmental justice issues. Students in the 4th-12th grades have partnered with Claremont College interns, professional chefs, a master mason, a Tongva elder educator, and landscape architects to develop recipes, build an outdoor classroom, and plant a Native California Edibles Garden. Through grant writing and fundraising, students aim to make the program lasting and sustainable. Plant Justice builds skills and knowledge, and develops youth leadership and community engagement.
