After six bungalows were removed at Walgrove Elementary, leaving 25,000 square feet of asphalt “blight”, principal Olivia Adams and organizing parents Emiko Kuwata, Zara Bennett and Clare Carey approached the LAUSD with the idea of converting the area back to “natural landscape”.
A lot of hard work later, LAUSD approved the project and the “Walgrove Wildlands” project began last November.
On April 20th and 21st, the group will be hosting community planting days for the “Wildlands”. Check out their website for more information! Help plant! Help make food for people that are planting! Help build benches! Help raise money! Get involved!
