Community Comes Together to Work on the Hawk’s Nest

The Hawk’s Nest project teamed up with Enrich LA to build the vegetable beds for the community garden, which will be ready in May. On Saturday, March 10th, over 40 Nightingale students, staff, and volunteers from the AmeriCorps Weingart Center Association, the LA Mission, and LA Conservation Corps came out to pitch in a hand and haul compost, build garden beds, and install the drip irrigation system.

By the end of the day, we had lots of tired but proud volunteers and the start of a COMMUNITY GARDEN!

The D3 Lab is a collaboration between the Pearson Foundation's New Learning Institute, COMMONstudio design consultancy, and Nightingale Middle School in Los Angeles. It is one part idea lab, one part design and production facility, and one part "do tank." It is a place where students come to nurture and cultivate ideas, tackle big and small problems, and take action.
