Tomas O Grady and Enrich LA’s elite team of professionals will lead a team of almost 250 volunteers to build two edible gardens at Robert Kennedy Community Schools, on Sunday May 20th in honor of Harvey Milk day! Partners include the office of Mayor Antonio Villaraigrosa and Gay for Good.
“This was the site of the old Ambassador Hotel and is now home to an architecturally stunning high school. We have created edible garden designs that we believe will fit right in and add to this important historic Los Angeles location.” Tomas O’Grady
The new edible gardens will feature redwood raised beds, an outdoor gray water sink, a composting system and eight fruit trees. The garden will be planted with organic seedlings from Sylmar High School including basil, tomatoes, rosemary, strawberries and 5 varieties of peppers
“I have never been so intimated by a project as I have been with this one. My hero Robert Kennedy was tragically shot here. We have to do this right. We have to do something amazing. Mediocre won’t cut it.” Tomas O’Grady
Partners like Enrich LA are the key to increasing the achievement of public school children” Antonio R Villaraigosa, Mayor of Los Angeles.
Joining Enrich LA will be Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Mollie Thomas the first openly gay woman who ran for Miss California USA.
