2022-2023

Sunday, November 13 - "Nature Restoration Project"(completed)

Facilitator: Sanjay Gupta

New Horizon School Pasadena has a long history of environmental stewardship through improving the health of our landscape, creating learning opportunities for our students and community, and working in partnership with other organizations toward healthier relationships with our planet.

This Fall, we are embarking on a new project to restore our parkway on Orange Grove Blvd. and Cypress Ave. to establish a new native habitat garden that will bring beauty and health to our campus and our neighborhood.

Our hope is that by restoring the land that our school is on we will improve our relationships with our living environment and offer a more beautiful and healthy space for neighbors, visitors, and our school community.

Volunteers are welcome to join our community workshops! You get to learn from our partners and experts in the field and participate in restoring the land with us.

 

Sunday, Nov. 13 from 9am-12pm

This Sunday, we will learn about water retention, rain harvesting and soil health! We are honored to have expert, Sanjay Gupta joining us to talk about watershed health and landscape features like berms, swales and hugels.

 

Everyone is welcome to join these workshops – friends, family, and neighbors! New Horizon students can even receive extra credit for participating!

Next Workshop: December 11th, 9am-12pm
