The Learning Garden, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is located on the campus of Venice High School. Out of a vision of a garden that serves the community, The Learning Garden blossoms from what once was an underutilized, weedy portion of Venice High School into an outdoor learning center with hands on education in horticulture, permaculture, herbology, botany, nutrition, art, photography and environmental science. The Learning Garden not only beautifies the community, but serves as a place of peace and serenity in an often turbulent, concreted world.



The Garden tends to be  open 10 – 5 Wednesday – Sunday. We are also available at other daylight hours by special arrangements.

Join us for our pot luck every Friday at 12:30 pm. on any day you don't need to put on a heavier jacket!
