The Niles Foundation Los Angeles 501(c)(3) nonprofit 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 low-moderate income, and underrepresented populations
Creating Local Urban Agriculture
One Purpose, Multiple Roles and Functions:
1. Environment: Maintenence, preservation, support, and awareness by increasing our green spaces, and development for the County of Los Angeles. The education and research of pollinator species, and plants, as well as herbs have become essential to our site's ecosystem balance and therapeutic purposes.
2. Healthy Living: Promoting fresh food access, increasing food sovereignty, and addressing food desserts through project-based learning. We're training members on how to grow their own food, and providing access for other sustainable quality food options.
3. Life Skills: Gardening, farming, and cooking have been integrated into training offered to families, as part of our program activities.
4. Occupational Training: Designed with the potential for career training in agriculture, and or food industries.
5. Community Engagement: We encourage all residents, volunteers, schools, and businesses, to become growers and trainers alongside families in our programs.
At this site alone, we've planted several types of vegetation such as lettuce, onions, chives, kale, beets, swiss chard including pollinator plants, herbs, and fruit vines. But wait, there's more!!! Stay tuned for the completion of the rooftop garden
Thank you, citizens, donors and volunteers!

Exciting news Los Angeles! We are planning and preparing to provide access for affordable housing. In addition, our fresh food access farm/garden sites will be combined by creating them on our low-moderate income properties to continue to build equity and equality for all.
