  • Community Supported Agriculture (CSA)

    Muir Ranch at John Muir High School 

    Muir Ranch is a 2-acre learning farm and educational program at John Muir High School.  Students grow fresh vegetables and flowers and sell them through a produce subscription program called, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), and cook the vegetables in the Muir Ranch Food Lab.

    Every week, CSA subscribers receive a bag or box of fresh produce grown at Muir Ranch and other regional sustainable farms.  Proceeds from the CSA are used to fund paid internships for students at the farm year-round.  Subscriptions are 50% tax deductible.

     

    Muir Ranch 

    For Community and School Garden Educators: 

    Every third Saturday of the month, from 9 am to 1 pm, Muir Ranch donates organic seeds and seedlings as part of its mission to spread urban gardening culture.  Get there early because these events are becoming popular!  Parking and entrance are on the southweat part of John Muir's campus, off of Canada Street.

    Community Gardens

    Having a garden is one strategy for improving access to fresh produce and physical activity opportunities, but many Los Angeles County residents live in apartments or homes with no space for a garden.  Community gardens provide that much-needed space by repurposing vacant land.  Community gardens rent out plots of land for gardening to the public.  Membership fees and plot sizes vary.
