Exciting New Project born out of Milagro Allegro
An exciting new project born out of Milagro Allegro is breaking ground this month. The garden’s co-founder and current Director, Nicole Gatto, is pleased to announce the creation of a new garden at Monte Vista Elementary School on Ave 54 and Monte Vista in Highland Park. Gatto, at UCLA and now herself a Master Gardener trainee, is working with LAUSD, USC and a local landscape architect to design and build a new school garden in order to host another offering of the successful, “LA Sprouts” afterschool program developed by a collaboration between Gatto, USC and Master Gardeners. Existing asphalt will be removed on the school campus to make room for the beautiful new garden. The LA Sprouts afterschool program is being funded by a generous grant from the Metabolic Studio, a direct charitable activity of the Annenberg Foundation led by Artist and Foundation Director Lauren Bon. More details about upcoming volunteer activities to come.
