Schools + Parents
Garden Education

All Redondo Beach Unified School District elementary schools along with Hermosa View School have LiveWell Kids gardens provided by Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) and maintained by the Garden Coordinator and Garden Angel volunteers. The LiveWell Kids Garden program provides five interactive lessons per year.

The LiveWell Kids Garden Program Learning Modules Include:

  • Module 1: Warm Season Harvest
    Students learn about the health benefits of the warm season crops that are growing in their garden. Students harvest the garden beds and prepare a mindful tasting with the ingredients.
  • Module 2: Cool Season Planting
    Students learn about seasonal planting and plant seeds for cool season crops.
  • Module 3: Composting
    Students learn the benefits of composting, examine macro-organisms and other contents in the compost pile, and participate in building a layer of compost in their compost bin.
  • Module 4: Cool Season Harvest
    Students learn about the cool season crops growing in their garden and how they relate to other plants. Students also harvest their garden beds and prepare a healthy cool season dish.
  • Module 5: Warm Season Planting
