New Center for a Healthy Lifestyle Location | Encinitas!
We still need your help. Get Involved.
Come check out The Center for a Healthy Lifestyle Farm located at the Griset Branch of the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito in Encinitas! The facility will feature an interactive, half-acre organic garden and commercial-like teaching kitchen.
Our farm-to-table culinary curriculum is designed by graduates of Alice Water’s Edible Academy in Berkley, CA. The students will learn practical skills and receive vocational training as they grow and prepare healthy food. The garden and kitchen will also be available for the entire community to enjoy healthy cooking classes, garden education, and will be a staple in the community for all to enjoy.
Currently, boys and girls ages 5-18 benefit from the Center for a Healthy Lifestyle in Solana Beach at the Harper Branch and at the La Colonia Branch during after-school programming and summer camps to include: organic gardening, nutrition, assemblies, field trips, and healthy hands-on cooking classes.
The new facility will provide classes for middle school & elementary school students and adults in:
- Nutrition Classes
- Culinary Academy
- Arts & Crafts
- Gardening Classes
- Vocational Classes for Youth
