John R. Wooden High School
In 2014 Kindred Spirits Care Farm was thrilled to make John R. Wooden High School (JRWHS) our first official project and location. JRWHS is a continuation high school for at-risk kids in a low income area. The staff is extraordinary, dedicated and excited about all the benefits that Kindred Spirits Care Farm can bring to their kids. The students loved their school-farm but didn't know how to make it thrive or leverage the space for education purposes. We are more than happy to help.
We host tours, field trips and some really great educational events, and we are working with UCLA to create a high school curriculum based on farm activities. You might be amazed how much science you can learn in a compost pile or a chicken coop.
If you are interested in having Kindred Spirits Care Farm come to your school and create educational opportunities for your students through gardens and rescued farm animals, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch us grow on Facebook and check back here for announcements and upcoming events.
We are so thrilled to be a community partner with UCLA. We have been able to work with several different professors teaching several different classes including:
- Food Justice with Kathy O’Byrne
- Civic Engagement with Lauren Willner
- Food: A lens on Environment and Sustainability with Andy Rice
- Philanthropy as Civic Engagement taught by Jennifer Lindholm
We are especially happy to be working with Amy Rowat PhD and the Office of Instructional Design who are helping us build a science curriculum based on farm activities. This curriculum will be the first of its kind that we know of.
118 Degrees is a raw, vegan restaurant serving up delicacies that have their full complement of vitamins, minerals and enzymes because none of their food is ever heated over 118 degrees. We are working closely with them to provide some of the most delicious ingredients money can buy.
