GSF is passionate about the important work that we do at our school sites around Los Angeles, so it is particularly exciting when we can bring two of those sites together in one of our beautiful gardens! On December 3rd, we welcomed a group of kindergartners from 24th Street Elementary to our greenhouse at Widney Career and Transition Center, a school which provides vocational training and instructional programs for students with developmental disabilities ages 18 to 22. The greenhouse is home to our new Greenhouse Program, a collaboration between GSF and Widney, which teaches these students how to plant and care for seedlings.
We couldn't be more excited to invite you to the Garden School's 10th annual fundraiser and chef-curated dinner, Harvest Moon! Our Harvest Moon Celebration brings the community together in support of the Garden School Foundation's mission to provide garden-based education to children in underserved communities across Los Angeles. Our garden-inspired and chef-driven multi-course tapas style dinner is the focal point of this magical evening in the garden. In addition, we will provide enchanting garden activities, an engaging program, lively music, swag bags and a live auction, coming together in a magical evening of support, inspiration, and gratitude. We hope you'll be able to join us!
If you have any questions, feel free to contact our development director, Robin Moler for details email@example.com or (310) 722-7657. Read more
How can you tell it’s fall in sunny LA? Here at the Garden School, our bountiful harvests of figs, apples, pears and pomegranates tip us off that summer is coming to an end. And we're getting ready to welcome our little gardeners and cooks into the garden for another school year- and that means a full schedule of fun Community Garden Days, of course!
Every year, GSF invites our friends, families and community into the garden for our Fiesta de la Huerta, an inspiring celebration and show of gratitude for all that we've accomplished throughout the year. Our students and their families enjoyed engaging & educational garden stations, field games, arts & crafts, delicious food, live music and a raffle to wrap it all up! We are truly thankful for all our sponsors and volunteers who made this wonderful and heartwarming afternoon possible!
The Garden School Foundation's City Seedling Summer Camp uses our Seed-to-Table philosophies to encourage play, exploration and learning in our 2 acres of beautiful school gardens. During our two sessions in June, campers will be welcomed to our landmark 24th Street school garden for an exciting week of cooking, gardening and science activities, outdoor games and arts & crafts. Campers will leave our day camp with new cooking and gardening skills, new friends, an appreciation for nature and an understanding of where their food comes from.
