JW Zunino Landscape Architecture teamed up with Create a Change Now to create a culinary teaching garden at Rose Warren Elementary School in Las Vegas, NV. Create a Change Now is a non-profit organization whose goal is to educate children on making healthier food choices. This goal is accomplished by first creating culinary gardens at economically challenged schools and then bringing world-class chefs into these schools to teach the students how to deliciously prepare all the food they have grown. JW Zunino was honored to be able to assist with this cause by donating full design services for Create a Change Now.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the garden was held on October 5th, 2010 at Rose Warren Elementary School. John Simmons, chef and owner of Firefly, was in attendance and gave a generous donation to help fund the construction.
JWZ was also pleased to volunteer in helping install the garden along with students, parents, teachers, Food for Thought, Par 3 Landscape and other volunteers. For more information on this project please go to the Create a Change Now Website. http://createachangenow.org
