We're thrilled to announce the opening of the greenhouse at Widney High School, next door to the 24th Street Elementary School.
When Widney approached GSF about partnering with them on a new horticulture job training program they're starting at their school for kids with developmental disabilities, we were very keen to help out. It began with us helping get their garden beds up and running again, and the kids were so engaged with the gardening that we knew we'd hit on a good partnership. Incredibly, while we were dreaming of the possibilities for this program, Conley's Greenhouse Supply decided to donate a commercial Hobby House greenhouse that we helped them install at Widney! With almost 1,000 square feet of growing space, we are all a little over-excited at what's to come.
We'll be selling seedlings at local farmers markets and helping local homeowners grow backyard gardens in South LA. Stay tuned as we update you on this wonderful new partnership.
