Young Hollywood Board Chair and garden mentor, Amy Smart, visited the beautiful garden at Carthay Center Elementary School on Thursday. The garden was in full bloom with fruit trees, a giant mulberry bush, carrots, herbs, grapes, lettuce, artichokes, fava beans, tropical fruit trees including papayas and bananas, and much much more.
The garden has been around since 2006 and has made a big impact on the way students learn about their natural surroundings. In fact, the hands-on experience of working in a garden has helped improve the school’s overall science scores by nearly 60% in a single year!
