Learning Gardensis a program designed to invite diverse community members to participate
in free garden lessons, workshops and events. The program was established in 1997 in an effort to transform failing public schools in the Chancellor’s District. From this school model, Learning Gardens transitioned to park sites. Providing environmental education, Learning Gardens invites community members to work in and learn about the park’s gardens, cultivating valuable benefits for the gardens and the people who care for them.
