The Beautiful Olivewood Gardens And Learning Center

Last week, for our school field trip, started out at Olivewood Gardens And Learning Center. Our teacher, Sara Polczynski volunteers at Olivewood in the kitchen. We were given the grand tour around the gardens and even got to sit in on one of their kitchen classes.

Olivewood Gardens And Learning Center is located in National City. In 2006, the Walton family donated the property to the International Community Foundation. By October 2009, It was gifted to Olivewood Gardens.

Olivewood Gardens provides lessons in science, nutrition education, sustainable agriculture, and environmental duties for local schools in the area.

"Fruits and vegetables are grown and harvested for nutrition classes, cooking demonstrations, and environmental education workshops. Learning is centered within the context of organic gardens and a kitchen."

Below I've posted pictures, But if you would like to experience this beautiful place first hand they give Public Tour for free Tuesday 10am – 11am...
