Source: GOOD - This weekend, GOOD is building the first of five school garden designs submitted as part of our project Design a School Garden with LAUSD (and We'll Build It). And we need your help! We're looking for members of the GOOD community to assemble and plant the school garden in downtown Los Angeles as part of a city-wide day of service on Saturday, January 15.
As you'll remember, last April we launched a project asking designers to design a modular school garden that could be installed at any LAUSD school. We received 40 excellent submissions and, with the help of our esteemed judges, selected five finalists and one special commendation. Those five finalists participated in a design workshop hosted by Mia Lehrer + Associates, where they learned more about LAUSD's approved materials and requirements. Over the next few months, they refined their designs.
Build a School Garden with GOOD and LAUSDSaturday, January 15 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. 28th Street Elementary School, 2807 Stanford Avenue, Los Angeles, 90011

No need to RSVP, just show up during the workday ready to do basic construction, painting, cleanup, or planting. If you have tools or painting supplies, bring them. And don't forget a hat, sunscreen, and a water bottle.
