Hermosa Valley School Garden
In partnership with Palos Verdes School Gardens, the first-ever middle school garden program in the Beach Cities is here. Programming provides Hermosa Valley students a highly-interactive experience that focuses on farm-to-table practices, and opportunities for advocacy in creating healthy eating habits. Lessons are taught by a dedicated garden specialist, and parent volunteers support school garden events.
