California Women For Agriculture chapter awards mini grants

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — Lake County California Women For Agriculture announced its latest round of mini grants for K-6 elementary schools in support of their school garden projects.

Each of the following schools was awarded $250 based on applications submitted by the school’s teacher or garden coordinator:

• Kelseyville Elementary School, Dorothy Torres, volunteer garden coordinator.
• Riviera Elementary School, Michelle Malm, Riviera Roots garden volunteer coordinator.
• Coyote Valley Elementary School, Matt Coit, principal.
• Cobb Mountain Elementary School, Angie Winchester, garden educator.
• Lakeport Elementary School, Chloe Rojas, third grade teacher/garden coordinator.
• Pomo Elementary School, Mitchell Johns, first grade teacher/garden coordinator.

Proposed projects included requests for seeds, planting materials, kid-sized gloves, garden tools, tomato cages, greenhouses and materials to build a farm stand.

The goal of each program is to have students learn to work in the garden and see where food comes from and how they can use it to make delicious and healthy meals.
