LOS ANGELES, A Place Called Home (APCH) will host a dedication ceremony to unveil its newly renovated community garden, funded by a $10,000 donation from Chipotle Mexican Grill. The garden is one facet of APCH’s Urban Garden Oasis project, aimed at integrating nutrition and gardening education into curriculum at the center and in the greater South Central community. The festive event will kick-off at 4 p.m. and include speakers from APCH, Chipotle, and the L.A. City Council, discussing the new partnership, programs, and impact on the local South Central community. To further commemorate the launch, APCH members will plant a raised plot with items featured throughout Chipotle’s menu, including onions, cilantro, tomatoes, tomatillos, romaine lettuce, and jalapeno, poblano, and green bell peppers.
