Florence Nishida
Founder @L.A. Green Grounds
Nishida’s horticultural background includes the study of macro fungi, particularly of California, and she currently teaches a monthly class on mushroom identification for the Los Angeles Mycological Society. In 2008, she joined the Master Gardeners of Los Angeles County to help encourage L.A. residents, most notably in under-resourced communities, to become more self-sufficient by growing food at home. Nishida also started the first edible/teaching garden at the Natural History Museum where she has taught Beginning Vegetable Gardening classes. In 2010 she founded the non-profit L.A. Green Grounds (www.lagreengrounds.org) to further her teaching goals. With this group, she has created many front-yard, edible gardens to demonstrate that people can improve their diets, health and physical stamina through the home growing of food.
