Savannah’s Organic Ranch Builds Its Largest Garden
The Sage Hill School garden and ‘mini ranch’ is the eighth community garden project for Savannah’s Organic Ranch.
By Julianna Crisalli | April 11, 2011
Members of Savannah’s Organic Ranch spent the last two weekends with volunteers at Sage Hill School in Newport Beach building the nonprofit’s eighth organic garden.
Residents will have a second chance in few weeks to determine whether to lease some land to local nonprofit foundation Savannah's Organic Ranch.
The foundation was created by Joe and Lisa Sachen in honor of their daughter, Savannah, who died at age 8 of a rare heart tumor in 2007. The Sachens said it was their daughter's dream to have an organic farm when she grew up, and to educate others on the benefits of eating organic foods.
Dedication day at the opening of Savannah's Organic Garden at Canyon Vista Elementary. The fourth garden we've opened as part of our ongoing effort to educate children about the importance of organic food.
Michele Gile reports.
"This is a short video and interview with Joe & Lisa Sachen, parents of Savannah, discussing the foundation, it's accomplishments, and the foundation's vision for the future."
The Aliso Viejo Community Association failed to meet the quorum requirement, resulting in no vote Thursday night for the approval of a land lease for Savannah's Organic Ranch.
The association will meet for a vote within 30 days. During the meeting, delegates were able to direct questions about the project to Ross Chun, AVCA president and Joe Sachen from Savannah's Organic Ranch.
