San Diego, CA, March 16, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- One San Diego company is “digging in” to more than just real estate: Tomea, Inc. Consulting, a comprehensive commercial and residential real estate and consulting agency, announced its sponsorship of San Diego’s Alice Birney Elementary School’s Garden Program for 2013, kicking off on March 1st.
Tomea, Inc., situated in San Diego’s Banker’s Hill, will provide funding to Alice Birney Elementary School’s Garden Program in the winter and spring months; for total of 33 weeks out of the school year. The funds will enable one lower grade (K-3) and one upper grade (4 & 5) to actively participate in the program.
Like many schools, Alice Birney fell victim to the State’s ongoing, structural funding problems, threatening the school’s ability to continue its fun & educational Garden Program.
“We knew we wanted to give back to a local school, but we were overjoyed to see that our contribution would go to a program that is so unique and special to both the students and teachers,” said Melania Mirzakhanian, Director of Operations at Tomea, Inc. Consulting. “After visiting the Alice Birney campus to see and hear for ourselves how important the Garden Program is to the students, we’re looking forward to watching how the garden, and the students, progress over the next year. This goes hand in hand with our Green Building efforts at Tomea,, Inc.”
Alice Birney Elementary is recognized as an International Studies Magnet school. Through structured & guided inquiry, technologically enhanced classrooms, and special classes, the school provides a wide range of learning experiences to students, grades K – 5. In the garden, students learn about and grow a variety of plants, fruits and vegetables, depending on the season, and utilize them in their very own cafeteria. The program also incorporates composting as a valuable soil amendment that provides nutrients to plants, soil stability, erosion control and more.
“Our Garden Program is a way to give students a different, hands-on way to learn about responsibility, hard work and the environment, outside of the classroom,” said Amanda Hammond-Williams, Principal at Alice Birney Elementary. “Unfortunately, since it is one of the add-ons to our regular curriculum, this program is one of the first things to get cut when the budget is low. It’s sponsors like Tomea, Inc. that allow us to enrich our students’ overall learning experience with lessons and skills that cannot be taught in the classroom.”
Tomea, Inc. will continue working with the PTA and Friends of Alice Birney Foundation to carryout the sponsorship and see out the sponsorship. Alice Birney Elementary School is located at 4345 Campus Ave. in San Diego, just a few miles from Tomea, Inc., and is noted for having a highly diverse student body.
