EMA Young Hollywood Board Member and Necessary Roughness star, Mehcad Brooks, along with the LA Conservation Corps, principal Peter Pannell and PUSD Superintendent Jon Gundry helped dedicate a school garden at Eliot Middle School on this rainy Wednesday afternoon.
Eliot Middle School is EMA’s 17th school garden and our largest to date, with nine drip irrigated planter beds and surrounding fruit trees. The garden was funded with a contribution from Sony Pictures and actress Cameron Diaz, who’s Bad Teacher filmed at the school.
