We Envision:

~ A life-transforming neighborhood where children and their families have daily

   access to an attractive, intentionally designed, garden space for playing, learning,     and growing food together.


~ Neighbors who interact with each other, actively de-stress, and build

    their own food network.

~  A venue for healthy child development/healing. 


~ Local, permanent, educational resources that support both young and old family       members, as well as educators and related nonprofits.

~ Biodiversity and local environmental stewardship as a beneficial part of daily living.


~ A vibrant community of diverse families enjoying a higher quality of city life.

The EC's Outdoor Learning Gardens have fourteen play and learn settings for young children supported by Eco-center resources. An attached pavilion facilitates group visits, educators, and collaborative programs. If your program can benefit from a nearby Eco-center with outdoor play and learn space, contact us.  We'd love to hear from you!
