Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, CA, United States
Mustangs Grow LA is Salesian High School’s brand new garden and urban farming program! We promote fresh food and healthy eating, environmental education and awareness, and community outreach and social justice. As a result, you can find us after school growing our edible fruit and vegetable garden down the street from Salesian at Mott Street Urban Farm alongside other community volunteers. At Mott Street, we hope to grow fresh produce for the local Salesian and Boyle Heights communities, teach students about urban farming and sustainable living, and develop an appreciation for community involvement. In the near future, we also hope to expand our program onto Salesian’s campus by developing space for an outdoor classroom full of native plants that attracts pollinators, birds, and other wildlife.
