For the community, by the community.


Built and maintained 100% by volunteers, the Emerson Avenue Community Garden offers a sustainable, organic green space for growth and enrichment.  From toddlers attending StoryTime/Music sessions, to seniors showing up for tours or our Pancake Breakfast, to scout troops using the garden for projects/activities, to families enjoying our movie nights, students at WISH & STEAM who get a chance to get out of the classroom and get their hands in the dirt; to LMU, UCLA, OTIS, and USC students helping at the garden for service hours, to the folks who take advantage of the multitude of classes & workshops offered, the garden’s reach is incredibly wide, and deep.
