  • San Francisco Salad Days: Youth Urban Permaculture Project (YUPP!)

    The sun is shining, now is your hayday....

    CREATED BYCasey GoldCasey Otter CushingAngela GoebelMark McQuillenVanessa Roland

  • Vision & GoalsOur goal is to redesign the backyard of the Bush/Baker Preschool with edible and sensory plant guilds, as well as develop a general vision of an educational garden and permaculture curricula that can be implemented elsewhere.

    The vision is aimed to create a site and corresponding course of study that encourages learning in fun and engaging ways, appealing to childrens natural curiosity and sense of play.

    The idea is to demonstrate that permaculture principles, the design process, and its implementation are multi-dimen-sional teaching tools that can be used in many different types of classrooms to varying degrees of complexity. Our concepts can be fleshed out more through customizing lesson plans from various books. For this project we referenced The Growing Classroom by Roberta Jaffe and Gary Appel applying a permaculture lens to the well established content.

    The ethics of Earth care/ People care/ Fair share are meant to be interwoven into all lessons, especially through discussions during the closing circle, as students talk about the days activities and which ethics they touched on and how. As well as supporting an attitude of stewardship, a curriculum based on permacultural principles supports long-term observation and the vision process as deep values to be nurtured by education.

    Please view our video to see how we began the visioning process for the project...
