A video tour of The Learning Garden's herbal education, community programs, and their plans to rebuild this unique public learning space in Los Angeles
For over 18 years, The Learning Garden has connected the Los Angeles community with organic horticulture, hands-on gardening therapy, and cultivation practices. The garden also has longstanding partnerships with the UC Master Gardeners Program and Yo San University of Traditional Medicine, bringing students and the community closer to nature for healing arts and education on the benefits of plants in one’s life. In 2020, The Learning Garden faced the threat of being shut down permanently due to complications with a massive construction project on the garden site. The Learning Garden was looking to spread the word for community support and apply for grants to bring back their programs.
