Additional Information

Funding: Donations
Program Highlights:

Tehipite students would like to start a school garden this coming school year. The focus of the garden will be learning about vegetable and where our food comes from,as well as sharing the crops with Tehipite families that are in need/hungry.

Program Information:

Tehipite Middle School is located in the downtown area of Fresno.  The three blocks that surround our school are one of the areas in America that has the highest number of people living in poverty nationwide.  Our students have trouble getting access to fresh vegetables and many do not know where their food really comes from.

We are truly just starting up, and our woodshop class is working on bulding the raised beds for the garden. We got all of our dirt donated to us from a lovely company called "Harvest Power".  They are awesome and deserve a big THANKS!
