Montessori Shir-Hashirim Los Angeles

Montessori Shir-Hashirim Los Angeles, is a preschool home to many young children of different traditions, race, color, religion or national origin in Hollywood. The school was facing an issue as the young children felt uncomfortable being watched as they make their way to school or out of school. After several attempts of taking this issue to the local law enforcements, the school decided to take things into their own hands.

The school made a quick decision to create a barrier along the sidewalk to school and received approval from the city. They decided to go with a more aesthetic looking barrier using raised garden beds and plants. They contacted us (Olle) to order the raised garden beds. Knowing the importance of this issue, the team quickly jumped on the issue and processed the order. 


Our team delivered the beds to the school the same day. We guided and assisted the volunteers to quickly assemble the beds. A few young kids joined us in completing the projects. Within two hours, the beds were completed and filled with Kellogg Garden's Raised Bed Potting Mix.


After the plants are planted, the young children would be able to go to school feeling safe. They will also receive education on gardening using these Olle raised beds, killing two birds with one stone.
