Preciado Garden on campus

Renewed energy began pouring into the Community Garden Space located on the Jefferson HS Campus where The Gates Foundation's New Tech Empowerment Academy calls home in January, 2011.  With the leadership of Ali Bhai from RootDown LA, the Biology Teachers took their Green Design Academy 10th graders to spend their class time learning in the garden.  The 11th graders were also out in the garden working on their sketches and taking measurements for their computer-aided drafting designs.  

Integrating the garden space with the curriculum and the neighborhood to create positive changes are part of the vision and goals of the Green Alleys.
