Garden & Nutrition

Over ten years ago, a group of parents came together to create a beautiful school garden and outdoor classroom at Julian Elementary.  Since then the garden program has grown steadily, and students now have weekly garden classes during the day and after school.  Our garden includes more than 20 fruit trees, raised garden beds for edibles, a native plant area, hundreds of flowers, a wildlife habitat designation, a rainwater harvesting system, and an outdoor cooking area. The space also includes a beautiful locally sourced wooden table and benches that seats a whole class!

To grow stewards by fostering character enrichment, academics, healthy habits, creativity and community building through the beauty of gardening.

Each year, we help the Julian Union Elementary School District celebrate Food Day.

We create a full-day schedule of presentations and activities in partnership with a variety of agencies from throughout the county. The entire day is dedicated to fun, interactive and hands-on workshops demonstrating farming techniques, sustainable agriculture, farm-to-table food systems, good nutrition, healthy habits, cooking techniques, local food producers and environmental health.
