The greater LA area is an industrial wasteland. Many low-income and middle class communities have to deal with air pollution and other environmental issues prevalent in sprawling suburban cities. One of these issues is the availability of locally grown, affordable and organic vegetables. Three students, Kirill Volchinskiy, Hana Lemseffer, and Necils Lopez, from Cal Poly Pomona’s architecture department are hoping to address this with a thriving community garden and educational space. They have been working for more than a year on a the design of an educational center for the Huerta del Valle Community Garden, and now, the students are hoping to raise funds that will allow the engineering of the library and completion of the kitchen and playhouse structure to bring the dream of a community garden to life.
