The recipients include: The Agrarian Institute, Beth Am Early Childhood Center, Coastal Roots Farm, Darnall Charter School, ECOLIFE Conservation, Encinitas Educational Foundation, The Alabaster Jar Project, Mesa Verde Middle School, Monarch School, Paige’s Pantry, San Diego Children’s Discovery Museum Escondido, San Dieguito Academy Gardening and Landscape Club, and San Pasqual Academy.
