The Harambee Community Garden opened in 2011. We provide our Northwest neighbors with an opportunity to lease a plot to grow fresh produce for their families or to give to someone else. We also have several garden plots on the main campus. Our students are taught weekly how to garden, how to prepare what they have harvested and healthy eating choices. Statistics show that in Northwest Pasadena, our neighbors have limited access to healthy food choices and food. Recently, we received an award from the Pasadena Community Gardens Conservancy for our contribution to Northwest Pasadena.
The garden was awarded the Pasadena Community Garden Award in 2012.
