Waste Reduction

Waste Reduction

Kids are recycling and composting leaders

More than 8,000 Davis students learn about waste reduction and composting each day at school.

DavisRISE (Recycling Is Simply Elementary) is our unique, proven, recycling program that reduces waste at all school sites.

Compost collection at elementary sites diverts all lunch food waste which means even greater waste reduction.

Davis Farm to School puts the “Give” in Thanksgiving with the Grow&Give Program

2017-10-04 GGHarvesting pomegranates


Davis Farm to School’s partnership with FARM Davis puts fifth-graders in charge of growing and harvesting fruits and
vegetables, and planning a meal for seniors, based on that harvest. In October, fifth-graders in
Lakshmi Aradhya’s class at Birch Lane Elementary planted greens and harvested pomegranates
for the meal they’ll serve Dec. 14 at Eleanor Roosevelt Circle.




Davis Farm to School is giving thanks by giving back.

This November we awarded $2500 in grants to gardens at our Davis schools
