LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2367, Bonilla. School gardens: sale of produce.
Existing law establishes the Instructional School Gardens Program for the promotion, creation, and support of instructional school gardens. Under existing law, a school district, charter school, or county office of education may apply to the Superintendent of Public Instruction for funding for a 3-year grant in order to develop and maintain an instructional school garden. Existing law limits the grants to a maximum of $2,500 per schoolsite, except as provided.
This bill would authorize a school district, charter school, or county office of education to sell produce grown in a school garden, regardless of whether the school participates in the Instructional School Gardens Program, if the school district, charter school, or county office of education complies with applicable federal, state, and local health and safety requirements for the production, processing, and distribution of the produce.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO
