Life Cycle Lesson and Some Producers for a Snack

At West Vernon Elementary the students learned about the life cycle in the garden. From producers to tertiary consumers it comes together with decomposers. Students spotted a chrysalis of a primary consumer (butterfly) and snacked on some fresh carrots. The broccoli is growing nicely as well.

I am happy to be one of the new Garden Rangers this year for EnrichLA.

I have a background in Biochemistry as well as Horticulture and Urban Agriculture.

As a third generation Los Angeles native I have been invested in improving the living conditions and opportunities in this great city since my time at UCLA.

It is an honor to be a part of this program and I look forward to helping improve LA’s youths relationships with food.
