Goleta Rotary Evening Club Hears from Schools’ Garden Education Manager

Jana Brody updates members on the sustainable garden they helped build at La Patera School

Jana Brody, the garden education manager of Brandon and La Patera schools, presented an interesting program Tuesday to the Goleta Rotary Evening Club.

Club President Martin Senn welcomed Brody as the evening’s guest speaker.

Brody is a UCSB graduate with a master’s degree in art administration and is active in the school system teaching children about nutrition, by engaging them in the art and science of sustainable gardens.

The Goleta Rotary Evening Club met Brody in October when the club volunteered to help build the sustainable garden at La Patera during United Way’s Day of Caring.

Brody reported to club members that their work building the sustainable garden is now baring the fruits of their labor, and the children are actually picking and enjoying the taste of fresh vegetables. She said she hopes to instill that the love of healthy food and the knowledge of how to build a sustainable garden will inspire youths into becoming healthy individuals, and in time, healthy adults and parents.

Rotary is a worldwide organization of more than 1.2 million men and women dedicated to world understanding and peace through international humanitarian, educational and cultural exchange programs. Today, there are more than 33,000 Rotary clubs in 200 countries.

Chartered in 1936, the members of the Rotary Club of Goleta participate locally and travel worldwide, participating in Rotary projects. The Goleta Rotary Evening Club meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month at Elephant Bar, 521 Firestone Road. Guests are always welcome.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
