Environmental Ed Award Goes to HEAL Project!
The past year has been challenging for everyone, especially for educators and students. Despite all of the challenges, it is wonderful to see our partner organizations receiving the recognition they deserve for their hard work. The HEAL Project was recently awarded a 2020 J. Russell Kent Award and 2021 Sustainable San Mateo County Award for their farm programs. The experiential learning opportunities they provide to students have given children throughout San Mateo County the opportunity to experience firsthand the wonders of growing food. They have adapted programming to accommodate distance learning, and are looking forward to welcoming students back onto the farm in the near future.
