Nicole Richie attended the Environmental Media Association's Organic Garden launch at the Helen Berstein High School in LA yesterday, May 12, to show her support of organic gardens in urban schools.

“I’ve been part of the Environmental Media Association for about 4 or 5 years now,” the 27-year-old told Hollyscoop. "Being in a school with the environment of education, it really doesn’t make sense to educate children on math, science, history and not educate them on nutrition and taking care of our planet. It seems that it is our responsibility to make sure that happens.

“What’s so great now is that it’s kind of become so popular [to go green] and it’s definitely more accessible. More people are going towards wood and glass and you can find that at Target or Walgreens, you can really find it everywhere. It’s definitely around and accessible to everyone, which is really great.”

Amy Smart also attended the event. To find out more about the Environmental Media Association, visit their website.
