A low water green space
to better our South LA high school and community
in many ways…
How can green space help the status of our South Central Los Angeles high school?
Outdoorspaces and gardens offer a calm place for our fellow students and beautify our campus
We can use the green space as a way to improve the air conditions at Jefferson, because of the factory located on Compton.
Trucks pulling into meat packing plant adjacent the school green space site
This is the chosen site
Our students will research and plant more native and other low water plants that will need less maintenance with the guidance of the Common Ground Master Gardener program and the Roots and Shoots Service learning project
Our partner elementary school Harmony will work with our students learn to care and get involved to better the environment. They will start at an early age to know how to better the world even by doing something this small.
Five simple steps to plant, it will be a great learning opportunity for the elementary students and the high school students who will teach them. And it will benefit the garden as well. Everyone wins!!!!
The International Fair was held at the site this year and last year showing that it’s a place for students to learn and lighten up. Imagine how much students can learn about the native habitats in their improved outdoor learning lab.
