A Crucial Next Step in the Gardens – Composting!

EnrichLA is installing a new program to make our gardens even more environmentally sustainable. Our awesome new Intern Ana Greenberger has an extensive background and knowledge base in composting. She is implementing a creative Composting Program that will eventually be used in all of the gardens.

Today, she visited three of our school gardens to see the best way to compost at each of these schools.

We can’t wait for the first day of school (tomorrow!!!) when the students will be walking into their school gardens filled with beautiful fresh produce and overflowing green growth!
