L.A. schools are getting garden-friendly these days and King Middle School is the most recent campus to benefit from some green thumb goodness with the planting of 26 fruit trees, according to the Echo Park Patch. The trees were planted on Friday by volunteers from Friends of King Middle School, TreePeople and Disney VoluntEARS. Los Angeles City Councilmember Tom LaBonge was even on hand to celebrate the planting and pose for tree-education photos. In addition to the new trees added to school grounds, 100 fruit tree saplings were given away to school families. LAUSD just approved King Middle School for an environmental studies magnet program that will focus on sustainability and environmental education which is slated to start this Fall.
