EnrichLA’s Interdisciplinary Garden Education Program

Our interdisciplinary curriculum provides youth opportunities to explore in an outdoor setting.  Our garden stewards teach K-12 students everything from cooking skills to environmental stewardship and history to social justice.  The foundation of our educational programs are rooted in the principals of both place-based and experiential learning models. It is our unique approach which allows urban youth to gain invaluable skills and to create a connection to the world around them. In a standards-focused education system, we give both students and teachers the opportunity to learn in a new, exciting and ever evolving classroom environment- the garden!

Can any public school request a program? A garden steward can teach weekly classes at any school with a garden. If you do not have a garden, we will build you one.

Can I request for a garden steward to teach at my school even if my school doesn’t have funding? Yes! We work with schools to find funding through grants, internal school funding and fundraising.
