Green and Healthy Schools
It is important to embark on the next stage in our evolution as a farm-to-school program by taking a holistic look at the health of our schools.
Working in close partnership with the Ojai Unified School District and other community groups, we are developing and implementing a plan to minimize the ecological footprint of the entire Ojai Unified School District, integrating the lessons of environmental stewardship into school curricula and daily operations. To this end, we drafted a Green and Healthy Schools Resolution that was unanimously passed by the OUSD Board of Education on June 24, 2008.
This resolution will help guide the way to developing a Green Schools Committee, and a plan and policies for energy conservation, minimization
of waste and consumption, and use of green cleaning products, among other actions.
