BSV Garden Team

Who are we? The BSV garden team is a motley crew of plant lovers, outdoor enthusiasts, and proponents of experiential learning in Berkeley schools. We partner closely on projects with BUSD’s Gardening, Cooking & Nutrition program.

Accomplishments to date: Early in the COVID crisis, the BSV Garden Team gathered hundreds of seed packets and in partnership with BUSD garden teachers, put together 800 take-home seed-planting kits for students and families, preK-5th grade. These “kits” were distributed at BUSD meals distribution sites and at the Ed Hub across several weeks.

Current Projects: The BSV garden team is currently mobilizing volunteers to support school gardens in a socially-distanced manner through the summer months!
