They'll have crafts for kids, They’ll be making bicycle-powered smoothies with fruit donated by Whole Foods, and the PTA will be on hand to let you know more about this great school! TreePeople will be there distributing pre-ordered rain barrels, doing rain barrel demonstrations, and talking about their tree mapping project. You'll also be able to pick up a printed map and get help planning your Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase tour. 


Grand View Boulevard Elementary is home to LAUSD's first and longest-running Spanish Immersion Program. Grand View merged with McBride school in 2013-2014, and now offers many programs integrated for children of all abilities. One of those programs is the school garden.


Capably tended by Kathyrn Kocarnik, whose salary is funded by a grant from the Garden School Foundation, the school garden has truly become a place of learning, where the new Common Core standards are woven into the lessons of the garden, and even making a recipe can be a teachable moment.


The Garden is also tended by dedicated parent volunteers, who help making weeding fun for the kids and keep the garden running smoothly year-round.

The garden is also on the Wildside School Garden Tour.
