ENRICHLA is an Environmental Non-profit focused on adding edible school gardens to public schools. Our school gardens are inexpensive, promote community involvement, encourage respect for our delicate planet, act as outdoor classrooms, cheer up school campuses, help students build a good work ethic, and promote thoughtful and healthy eating habits.
We build/renovate gardens: Any public school that would like a garden contacts EnrichLA. We then work with that school and find a location on campus for the garden. We design the garden and secure the necessary permits from LAUSD facilities and other departments. We work with the school to find funding for the garden through grants, internal school funding and fundraising. Finally we organize a huge “build day” to build the garden using both our own volunteers and volunteers from that particular school and surrounding community.
We provide “Home & Garden Economics” programming. Any public school with a garden can contract with EnrichLA to come to their school on a weekly basis to give their students an experience in gardening and cooking. Again, we work with the school to find funding through grants, internal school funding and fundraising.
