Miramonte High School


The Miramonte High school garden is nearing a decade old. Having started with the force of a motivated science teacher, the original garden space located next to the tennis courts is slowly being converted into a flourishing food forest. Due to irrigation qualms, the garden was reestablished in the center of campus some 4 years ago with the help of GSE. The garden beds have recently been rigged with irrigation and there is a new greenhouse on the way.
