THE STORY:

At 112th Street Elementary in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, the City Year Los Angeles team at 112th in conjunction with the LA's Best after school program, are revitalizing an overgrown garden space at the school. Our goal is to give back to the school community and provide a native garden that will flourish for years and provide an alternative educational space for the school.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
-Donate your time! Please contact Mack Freeman at 229-402-2284 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              229-402-2284      end_of_the_skype_highlighting if you would like to volunteer the day of the event. The time is from 2:30 until 5 PM. We'll be planting, building benches, and finishing up murals!
-Donate your resources! If you live in the LA area, we could use some soil, mulch, and other gardening implements. Let us know if you'd like to give (see contact info below).
-Donate your money! Allyson got us off to a great start, but we could use more support! Crowdrise makes it real easy, and you know you love a native garden. It rocks because it's going to live forever. We'll use it to finish up our supply check and buy healthy snacks for all our hard-working volunteers!

Our goals are:
-Removing all weeds and debris from the area
-Painting an inspiring mural on the garden walls
-Planting native plants that will thrive in the area for years
-Creating a path to make the garden sustainable for educational use.

I'm so impressed with City Year. Happy I can support your hard work. I'll spread the word about this project to everyone I know so they can either volunteer their time or donate some money. 7 years ago
