We are proud to include Orthopedic Medical Magnet High School in Los Angeles as part of the TNF family. TNF recently installed 6 new raised garden beds that will provide students food access, gardening, farming and environmental education.
Ortho's garden club students helped TNF install raised garden beds and also planted Rainbow Carrots, Strawberries, Swiss chard, Butter Lettuce, Basil and Rosemary. Students will regularly maintain the garden beds, and TNF will train students monthly on how to grow food for food security.
