Kicking off 2023 very casually BUT with exciting happenings from BUSD's environmental initiatives and catching up with all you're creating at your respective schools. Two items to workshop:
Our very own Juliane Crumpe, BEC Greenspaces lead and chair of BUSD EAC's Grounds and Gardens subcommittee, will be workshopping to improve greenspaces at BUSD's school sites. From Juliane herself:
Many of you know that I have been working with TreePeople (non-profit tree planting org) on and off for about a year and a half. Well, the stars have aligned, and they have offered to write a large planning grant with CalFire for BUSD, to massively improve greenspaces at many - if not all - of our campuses. This is an amazing opportunity, and I need help developing our side of the grant. I need two things:
Help brainstorming and organizing goals for what our green Burbank schoolyards would look like across the District.
Help connecting with individual campuses, finding out what they want and who our “local experts” (admins, teachers, volunteers, changemakers) are at each campus. If necessary, helping me coordinate site visits.
If you want to take a look at the guidelines before the meeting, here’s the info:
Otherwise just come with your good ideas and collaborative spirits! I am so excited to be working on this with you. If you can’t make the meeting but want to help, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
2) Earth Day 2023
We are creating a laundry list of ideas for schools and reps to take on... so if you have ideas, let's workshop them to propose. Ideally would love to get this list to the school principals and reps by the beginning of March so everyone has time to plan. And we need a theme...
