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.

UCLA is just getting the foundation down with the Dig gardens (at Sunset Recreation Center and the North Campus Center Terrace), UCLA Dining Garden, and Medicinal Gardens popping up within just the past couple years and really taking off in 2013.  UCLA is set to expand food growing on campus, as is Los Angeles.  

Take a look at some of the community gardens that currently exist in LA at this awesome story on the LA Times website. Get inspired! Start your own backyard, school, or community garden! Don’t hesitate to reach out to Dig for assistance!
