After being approached by concerned teachers at a central Los Angeles elementary school, writer Emily Green, chef Nancy Silverton and garden designer Nancy Goslee Power formed the Garden School Foundation. They’ve spent two years working with LAUSD for improved landscaping, nutrition
programs and outdoor classrooms. La Brea Bakery came in to sponsor the nutrition/environment program.

On May 7th, Garden School Foundation will launch a master plan for a prototype schoolyard designed around the campus of 24th Street Elementary School.

To mark the launch, chefs from the A.O.C., Border Grill, Ciudad, El Cholo, Jar, La Brea Bakery, Loteria Grill at the Farmers Market and Lucques, will be joining Silverton for a Cinco de Mayo festival.
