West Vernon Does the Numbers

Planning gardens is challenging without the right tools and know how. Fortunately at West Vernon Elementary the students are well prepared. A spacing chart of common edible plants and a blank scaled map of their school garden let the students fill the space with their own choices. Getting ready for their own garden space planning.

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.
