Big Brothers Big Sisters Gardening at SATG
Simi at the Garden has partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters Ventura County to provide an after school space for Simi Valley youth to learn how to organic garden as well as learning beneficial life skills.
The gardens have created an outdoor classroom surrounded by a gardening shed, compost bin, eight raised garden beds, log seating, two sets of patio seating, and a beautiful orchard. The orchard includes an avocado tree, kumquat, pineapple guava, lime, Spanish & French Lavender, yarrow, ceanothus, and other native shrubs.
We hope to help educate youth on the importance of a healthy organic diet, growing your own food, cooking your own food, as well as learning about habitats of local fauna and flora.
