‘Make A Green Noise’ To Help Sprout Community Gardens In Compton « 94.7 The WAVE.

Rushelli Luna, Pat Prescott, Rhonda Webb

A new movement is helping transform urban communities into beautiful eco-spaces by teaching others to “utilize green tools to promote opportunities for equitable, sustainable and innovative renewal.”

The non-profit organization Make A Green Noise is the eco-friendly effort of the program director Rhonda Webb and development director Rushelli Luna.

Through ‘Make A Green Noise,’ Rhonda and Rushelli aspire to teach communities how to plant their own gardens in effort to lower the carbon footprint as well as providing access to “healthier, organic food.”

The movement is focusing on building up in areas of Compton, which has a history of having very rich farmland in the past, and transforming the community back to its previous ‘green’ state.

Rushelli explains that the organization tries to fight for grants and funding in inner city neighborhoods because those areas are what need the most help.

“We have to constantly fund-raise, and we are new non-profit organization therefore it’s even harder to start up,” she said. “Right now our biggest challenge is getting the fund-raising dollars and getting the community out in masses.”
