We want to help create a world where young people understand the connection they have to nature and each other and are prepared to live up to the responsibilities of being a good global citizen.
Chicas Verdes brings students into community gardens where they can establish roots and develop as socially minded leaders so that they can spread their positive influence wherever they go.
Since COVID started, we moved out of the garden and into the streets where we host weekly food giveaways where we distribute around 50,000 pounds of produce to 1500 families weekly.
We're looking for financial support so that we can connect more students to nature and the resources they need to become the community leaders that will shape our future world.
Here's what we'll do with the money
-Develop a paid apprenticeship program for recent graduates to mentor current students and maintain program operations
-Provide scholarahips for Chicas Verdes students
-Open a new Chicas Verdes school site and garden program in August 2021
-Revamp the Manual Arts High School garden and greenhouse
-Host food, clothing, and book drives in South LA
-Host community education events about health, wellness, and sustainable practices
-Plant fruit trees in South LA
& so much more!
