The Niles Foundation Los Angeles is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was founded to promote and increase equity and equality for all, by organizing local community, education, supporting sustainable projects, and empowering our citizens especially our LMI population.
1. Healthy Living: Our sites were created to promote healthy eating habits, decrease food insecurites, provide fresh food access, and to promote a healthy lifestyle by creating project-based learning & training for community members to grow their own food. Our goals are to increase food sovereignty for Los Angeles.
2. Life Skills: Gardening, farming, shopping and cooking are integrated into training offered to families, and our standard activities.
3. Occupational Training: Our urban agriculture sites are designed with the potential for career training in agriculture and or food industries.
4. Community Engagement: We encourage all residents, volunteers, schools and businesses, to become growers and trainers alongside families in our programs.
This rooftop garden will support roughly 140 low-moderate income families,
training families on how to grow their own food and living sustainable.
