The new garden, which now covers one acre adjacent to the center and was built by the LA Neighborhood Land Trust, has a fruit orchard with stone fruit trees, two dozen garden beds for vegetable growing and a medicinal garden. To maintain the garden, a Gardening Apprentice Program, has been launched at the school and 15 students get to learn about growing fruits and vegetables, plant biology and botany.
