Student Action Project Team Teams Up With Enrich LA

The “Superheroes” are the self-named Student Action Project team that is focusing on turning a large plot of land on the school’s blacktop, aptly named the Forbidden Garden, into an edible garden and outdoor kitchen. To get this large task done, they’re relying on the support and expertise of Enrich LA, a local organization dedicated to building outdoor garden classrooms in public schools.

Students are working with Tomas O’Grady and Bordeaux M from Enrich LA to research, plan, design, and build Nightingale’s first edible garden in the Forbidden Forest.

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.
