Variety Boys’ & Girls’ Club of East Los Angeles and
National Association of Theatre Owners of California/Nevada
Inaugurate Urban Oasis

On September 1, 2016, the Variety Boys’ & Girls’ Club’s (VBGC) in East Los Angeles transformed its outdoor roof patio into an Urban Oasis as a result of the generous grant from the National Association of Theatre Owners of California/Nevada (NATO).  The VBGC - NATO Urban Oasis provides club members with access to a green space, which sadly is limited in the Boyle Heights community.  In addition to having access to a green space, VBGC members will engage in a garden-based program that will teach them about nutrition and how to grow, harvest, prepare and eat simple whole foods.  Since its opening members of the club have been busy planting strawberry, lettuce and broccoli seeds.
