El Jardín del Barrio

Our Story

El Jardín del Barrio (The Neighborhood Garden) is a Spanish thesis project centered around a garden in Los Angeles, an area we’ve come to know well and feel will best facilitate our message of transformation and overcoming one’s circumstances.

It tells the story of Veto, a young Latino adolescent trying to find his place in his community, and his grandfather, Ciro, who tries to take a guiding role in the boy’s life after the death of Veto’s parents. The two are and have been dealing with the prospect of gang relations in their community, and as the story unravels, we see two different time periods come to a turning point where Veto and Ciro must make decisions that will affect themselves, their families, and their communities.
