What an amazing year! A big thank you to everyone who helped make such a vast improvement.

Special thanks to our interns, professor Anne McKnight whose wisdom and connections proved vital to our success, Wynbrandt Farms and Steven Wynbrandt for the amazing bio-dynamic compost that made all the difference as well as his knowledge he passed onto us, and to the programs that helped fund this project: the UCLA Healthy Campus Initiative and The Green Initiative Fund.
