The GAME Program

This Fall we launched the Gardening, Art, Mapping, and the Environment (GAME) Project, a partnership between West Bay, Crissy Field Center (CFC), and Intersection for the Arts (IFTA). West Bay youth participate in workshops on environmental justice that the South of Market community faces. The program also includes field trips to Heron’s Head Park and the Presidio. For their culminating project, students will work in groups to create atlases of San Francisco. Each atlas will highlight the green space in the city (e.g. parks and gardens) and juxtapose it with another feature of their choice (i.e. where they like to hang out, the location of great horned owls’ nests, the distribution of cypress trees, the number of liquor stores, etc.). Students will engage in environmental science studies that include outdoor experiences, hands on experiments, monitoring and restoration for the length of this fall semester program. IFTA will lead the gardening portion of the project in collaboration with the organizations Holy Stitch! and Kids in Parks. The students will create a hanging garden located next to the Chronicle Building on Mission Street. We are excited to work with these amazing organizations and create a unique approach to exploring the environment in The City.
