Enrich LA has a very unique approach to garden education. In our experience, even a little bit of exposure to garden education can make a big impact. For this reason, we aim to reach as many students as possible.Thanks to generous aid from our donors and a frugal no-nonsense approach, we are excited to offer the Garden Ranger Program to schools at an extremely low cost.
Schools are asked to contribute towards the cost as follows:
Title 1 Public School - $5,775
Non Title 1 Public School - $7,600
Non Public School - $10,440
The Ranger program encourages parent, teacher, student and community involvement. Our rangers also blog about their work every week so parents can see what the school garden is up to and get involved! In addition, we have developed a volunteer-based Parent Ranger position to further engage parents into the school garden!
