environmental-outreach-boysRelationship to the environment is a key element of The Art of Living and Learning.  Krishnamurti repeatedly emphasized the importance of developing in each child a sensitivity to nature that would translate into active stewardship and responsibility for the environment.

Students at Oak Grove from the earliest ages are actively engaged in learning about and caring for the environment.   The curriculum from preschool through 12th grade has embedded within it an environmentally conscious focus.  Active stewardship begins with caring for our own land - the flora and fauna of the Oak Grove School - through horticulture classes, organic gardening, and committing ourselves to responsible sustainability practices - and extends to the Ojai Valley and ultimately the world.

Over the years Oak Grove School has supported several community outreach programs focused on environmental awareness and stewardship; Once Upon a Wetland, Once Upon a Watershed, and VenturaWild! to name a few.  These programs allow Oak Grove as a private school to partner and share resources with public schools.   Students in neighboring public schools such as Meiners Oaks Elementary and Nordhoff High School work together with Oak Grove students to experience, learn about, and engage in service projects that help protect our beautiful valley.  Oak Grove's proximity to Besant Meadows and the Ventura River Preserve give students many opportunities to enjoy our local treasures.
