Oceana & Pie Ranch Win Kent Award!

We are proud to announce that Oceana's Pie Ranch Partnership won a Kent Award! The San Mateo County School Boards Association initiated the J. Russell Kent Award Program in the 1980-81 school year. The awards are given to innovative programs that are being implemented in a school district, county office of education, or in the community college district in the county.

Oceana has been in partnership with Pie Ranch, a sustainable organic farm dedicated to youth education and empowerment, since 2008. This relationship was the seed for the school garden, the school’s culinary program and 16 years of interims. Oceana’s partnership continues today and the school looks forward to providing more opportunities for Oceana students to learn about sustainable agriculture, culinary skills and food justice.
