The garden is to be located on the north end of the campus after the removal of two old temporary buildings.“Franklin avenue elementary school is one of the success stories of LAUSD. The API this year is hovering close to 900. I have known the Principal Mrs. Sasso and the teaching staff there for a number of years and you will be hard pressed to find a more professional bunch of people.” Tomas O’Grady
“We are going to approach this step by step. Start raising money, work with the district to get permission and create space, remove the asphalt, test the soil and then we will plant” Tomas O’Grady
“Let me be completely honest here. This school has a special place in my heart. I fully intend this to be the best, most sophisticated school garden in Los Angeles. This is one of the top schools in California and so it should have a stunning garden.”
