Dream Gardens at Alta Loma

The rain kept us indoors but we used our imaginations to escape outdoors!  The students had the opportunity to design their dream garden filled with their favorite fruits, vegetables and flowers.  They had to make sure to incorporate all the things plants need to grow: water, soil and sun!

Originally from Arizona, I was brought out to beautiful Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California where I will be graduating come December with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Studies.  I grew up with a love of gardening from spending summers on my papou’s farm in Greece to helping my parents tend to our personal garden in Arizona.  My passion for the environment and gardening go hand-in-hand and I can’t wait to incorporate lessons from my studies to the students I am teaching at Alta Loma!
