Sarah Johnson is a good friend of ours who formerly worked at Thurgood Marshall Acadmey, where we helped build one of our gardens. Sarah now works as a Biology Teacher at Castlemont Community of Small Schools and Leadership College Park where she started a green club and stipended interhship program called the Green Pioneers. Sarah and her Green Pioneers learn skills related to urban sustainability to help them design and carry out their own projects. Students have installed their own irrigation systems, built ponds and other urban beautification projects. They also maintain a garden with 30 raised beds and a chicken coop. Somehow with all this going on, Sarah still manages to hold a big Earth Day Event. This year there will be a parade and rally followed by a large Earth Day Fair. Way to go Sarah!
