To Whom it May Concern,
The Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council granted a Neighborhood Purpose Grant of $1,000 to EnrichLA to be used at Tulsa Elementary School for the 2019-2020 school year. The students at Tulsa Elementary were able to enjoy the garden program this school year and we wanted to share these updates with you during these difficult times. At EnrichLA, we were also able to create Learn From Home video lessons that we shared with all our schools, to keep students connected to the garden during the ongoing
Covid-19 Pandemic. You can find our video lessons on our Youtube or Webpage.
The generous grant we received from Neighborhood Councils, such as the one from Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council, helped us provide students with an educational, fun and engaging Garden Ranger program throughout the school year. It also helped us adapt to the pandemic and still provide some type of learning experience for the thousands of students that we serve. A breakdown of how we used the funds can be found below:
- Class Materials: including soil for experiments, poster boards, markers, notebooks, snacks etc. $250
- Seedlings and Seeds: including basil, tomato, strawberries, assorted flowers and much more. $250
- Soil amendments: including soil, compost and organic fertilizers. $150
- Garden tools for students. $100
- Replacement of Irrigation timer and drip lines (due to damage from squirrels) $250
The success of our Garden Ranger Program at Tulsa Elementary would not have been possible without the amazing contribution from the Granada Hills North Neighborhood Council, and we send you our deepest gratitude.
Thank you from all of us at Enrich LA!
Enrich LA Team
