Environmental Charter Middle School-Inglewood Community Garden Case Study

In October 2020, with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, three raised garden beds and two in-ground garden beds were built right outside of the ECMSI campus. The ECMSI community garden’s goal is to empower the community by increasing health and social equity while simultaneously localizing solutions to food access, climate change, and air pollution. Check out this case study to learn more about the creation of this garden and partnership. 

The research utilized to inform the calculations in this case study includes:

The potential for urban household vegetable gardens to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (2017) & US EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator (2021).
