The garden at St. Stephen's and Delaney Wright was the result of extended activism and advocacy from the local community. With help from then council-member Eric Garcetti, a bountiful, beautiful source of food and green-space for the neighborhood grew in place of an unattractive alley. The garden is maintained in partnership with the LA Episcopal Diocese and its Seeds of Hope ministry.
Delaney Wright students spend time experiencing our garden and learning about the plants and processes they see there through our unique, hands-on, garden and science-based curriculum. From planting new flowers to picking fresh fruits and veggies, the garden is a beautiful, bountiful, educational and enriching space for our students, staff, parents, and community to enjoy!
Produce from the Hope Garden is available at our garden stand at the end of many school days and families can subscribe to a weekly fresh produce option as well! We also encourage our students and parents to join us at seasonal garden building and planting days to meet new friends and get involved with the growth going on our beautiful campus.
