Working in partnership with the students of Central High School in Los Angeles, the American Friends Service Committee is creating an edible and sustainable school community garden.
The goal of the Friends Peace Garden is help Central High School become a community leader in green innovation and a pioneer in urban farming by 2012. By using current science, technology and conservation methods, the students will implement ideas to green their campus by creating organic solutions that are environmentally friendly and efficient.
On a spring morning people gathered two blocks from Port Street at the Amazing Rose Street community garden to plant vegetables that will eventually be distributed through the Grace-full Living Wellness Center Food Pantry.
