Outdoor Programs Engage
Students at Redwood
Redwood Adventist Academy, a K-8th grade school in Santa Rosa, Calif., is coming back to life after being destroyed by the Tubbs Fire in 2017. Enriching programs such as their outdoor and agriculture are once again taking place. In RAA’s Outdoor Learning program, kindergarten students get to go spend time out in nature exploring and learning. Students in grades 1-8 get to enjoy the outdoors through participation in RAA’s agriculture program where they develop skills in planting and growing their own food. RAA is excited about their future campus, which will have a state-of-the-art kitchen where students will create nutritional meals using the food they grow.
