The S. Kitchen presents...A Field Trip to Urban Sprouts

The S. Kitchen is pleased to present our first field trip! It is to Urban Sprouts' school garden at June Jordan School for Equity on Sunday, November 7 from 1pm to 4pm.

Urban Sprouts was our fabulous guest of honor at Slowly Growing Green, the first The S. Kitchen to go on the road. Now, we are continuing our effort to raise awareness about school gardens, slowing down, and reducing our ecological footprint by helping Urban Sprouts grow....

We will do this by visiting their garden at June Jordan located at 325 La Grande in San Francisco. This school is very near and dear to my heart. I used to work at the middle schools that once were located at this campus: Burbank Middle School and Excelsior Middle School. Located next to McClaren Park and on a beautiful campus, June Jordan seeks to empower youth through equitable curriculum that fosters social justice. Urban Sprouts is one of their community partners helping them realize their vision.

Friends can expect to:
  • Learn more about the school garden movement;
  • Get dirrrrty by weeding, seeding, and playing in soil;
  • Increase their gardening skills;
  • Be a part of a growing community dedicated to cuisine, conversation, and camaraderie.
As with all The S. Kitchen events, this is a shared experience. Normally, we ask folks to bring something to share. This time, we are asking that you bring your time, open mind, and a friend or two. That's it!

We hope to see you there!

The S. Kitchen Crew: Jason W., John O., and Kailani S.
