Plenty of Plant Parts at West Vernon Elementary

A lesson on plant parts was followed by some tasty snacks from the garden. Seeds, leaves, and roots were on the menu this week. A walk through the garden highlighted the different plant parts we eat. Students also read plant part functions to the class so they could guess which part was being referenced.

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.
