La Loma is a critical partner in the creation of Arlington Gardens, a three acre, award-winning community garden. We were also awarded the Green Hero Award by Environmental Charter Schools for the greening of their campus, which also received national attention as a runner-up in the White House Race to the Top contest. We received the Pasadena Beautiful Golden Arrow Award for our classic terraced vineyard project and other front-yard gardens. We were published on the cover of Landscape Contractor Magazine for our use of recycled concrete in beautiful, monumental projects, as well as stories in LA Times, Sunset, Pasadena Star, and others. We had an acclaimed installation, the Public Fruit Tree Theater, at LACMA that unfortunately was replaced by "Levitated Mass." We have been publicly commended by several council members for our work at schools and other community projects, such as Plaza Morazan (Ed Reyes), Main St. Elementary (Jan Perry), Pasadena Senior Center (Steve Madison). We bioremediated our site, eliminating the gasoline, oil and chemicals. We are leaders of converting toxic chlorine pools into Natural Pools, that create habitat and store drinking water. We were called upon as an emergency responder to the recent windstorms, and we pride ourselves as being a force of nature for our community. Currently we are finishing a large Demonstration Garden for the Chino Basin Water District. Marco Barrantes was formerly a Parks and Recreation Commissioner, as well as a member of Food Policy Council, he wrote a book called "Feed Your City: Urban Agriculture Food Systems." We are a registered Small Business, Minority Business Enterprise, and pre-qualified for projects with LAUSD, MWD, among other major institutions. We have created jobs and income during a recession, what more can you ask?
