This video is of the school gardens at Mt.Diablo High Hchool, in Concord, CA located in the Bay Area of California. The gardens were started for the high school students many years ago when Patrick Oliver an environmental science teacher there turned an empty plot of land into a flourishing school garden. Students can now see where their food comes from and have a chance to get their hands working with soil and seed. This garden truly stands as a model for what many schools across the country and the globe can look like! This was my second Wwoofing, trip and I support the global ecovillage/permaculture/school garden movement. The future starts with a seed, our children and our food. They both be blessed, and well! I do not own the music in this video. The tracks are segments a trance artist, ATB.

    Thanks Paul for showing off that nice little lush learning space. I enjoyed the tour and look forward to more vlogs, garden demos, and/or more tours. I want to ask about the drain in the center of the garden shown toward the end of the video. Is this drain used to capture water for the garden or does it lead to the sewer system? Thanks Paul!

    My child attends this school, it's inner city and only the children with upper class accents were featured. This is absolutely not a true representation of the intake of children. That man isn't even a teacher, he's a learning mentor.

    what video-editing software do you use for this? thanks

  • Graham's Kitchen Garden 1 year ago

    Wow! What a brilliant project to be involved in and what a clever bit of editing! Those children will never forget the experience of being involved in such an essential type of reaserch in plant growth. Well done Sean, you should be proud also, to be part off this wonderful scientific experience. Best wishes Graham
