Root Down LA is a non-profit organization that has recently partnered with Jefferson H.S. to increase students’ awareness of healthy food systems and empower them to take charge in actively creating a healthy community.
In September, several students from the Green Design Academy visited the McGrath Family Farms, an organic farm in Camarillo. At the farm, they helped harvest roma & cherry tomatoes and tended the strawberry beds. They also cooked a healthy lunch!
