The Norman Harriton Community Garden is an organic community garden in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. The garden is operated as a joint venture between the Lycée International de Los Angeles and the Franklin Hills Resident's Association.

Founded in 2000 by the late Norman Harriton, the garden is comprised of an eclectic mix of households united by their love of organic gardening, and a strong sense of community.

Plots are made available to neighbors on the waiting list as plots open up. To learn more about the garden, or to get on the list for your own plot, please e-mail us at:

In 2000, Franklin Hills community leader Norm Harriton saw beyond a neglected, weedy field, and pushed his dreams to create a lovely and productive neighborhood asset. Norm lived in the Franklin Hills through six decades and will be remembered not only for his determined leadership, which transformed a thicket of weeds into a bounty of organic vegetables, but also for his many other services to the community, and most of all for his wisdom and gentle nature.

Norm is lovingly remembered in the seeds, soil and sweat he invested in the Franklin Hills Community Garden.
