Edible Garden

Amidst the urban landscape of Los Angeles and the frenetic pace of today’s digital world, our Edible Garden program gives children the opportunity to slow down, observe the natural environment around them, and learn and engage in the process of cultivating their own food.

Led by the Garden Rangers from Enrich LA, the children sow, water and harvest herbs, vegetables and fruit through the seasons, observing the effects of climate and the interconnection between all the organisms that live and grow in the Garden. In doing so, students develop an understanding of ecology and biology, gain a connection to the earth, and learn the importance of healthful eating.
