South Los Angeles- Fremont High School

The Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust, the University Muslim Medical Association, and the Los Angeles Unified School District have come together to address multiple challenges in the low-income community of South Los Angeles: high rates of chronic disease, a lack of parks and open space, and under-resourced public schools. By converting an abandoned 1.5 acre lot into green space, a community garden, and a health clinic, this innovative partnership is launching a comprehensive effort that strengthens community, creates opportunities for health and supports diverse learning methods for students.
