TPF will continue working with students on Community Gardening projects initiated during our summer session. TPF will meet once per month with Leadership students to discuss opportunities for service and involvement in the community.

PROJECTS

  • Community Gardening
  • Turning Pages Turns the Soil

Turning Pages Turns the Soil is a school-based community gardening project. The project took root during the Turning Pages Summer Leadership program and is now branching out to work with the community. The goal of the project is to promote healthy food for healthy people and a healthy planet. This year, TPTS has planted the seeds for many exciting projects:
•    At Colfax Elementary TPTS Leaders have contributed to the school farm by planting and tending an herb garden.

•    Because we recognize that everyone deserves healthy food, TPTS is reaching out to the North Hollywood community and encouraging people to donate their homegrown produce to local food banks.

•    We are planting and distributing seedlings to people in our community to promote the idea that anyone can begin to grow their own food, whether they have a big garden or just a few pots on a balcony.

•    TPTS is building a community composting partnership with the neighbors around Colfax School so that waste from our kitchens can be turned into soil for the school garden.

•    We are continuously creating opportunities for students to visit other community garden and farming projects around the city, to inspire and motivate them in their growing commitment to their own gardens.

The students of TPTS are planting the seeds of a healthy, sustainable, community where everyone has access to fresh and affordable food. We need the help of our friends and neighbors so that these seeds may sprout and grow.
