The San Diego Green Building Council is proud to partner with Greenbuild and Olivewood Gardens for this year's Legacy Project.


The project is centered around an outdoor garden Master Plan which includes the installation of a blueberry garden, community mural, and outdoor lounge.

The Legacy Project responds to the need for healthy food education, production, and access. It also speaks to the social equity pillar of sustainability. Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center's historic 7.85-acre property in National City, California serves as an inclusive and interactive, indoor-outdoor classroom for San Diegans of South Bay. They are driven to build healthy families in their local environment. They do this through science-based nutrition education, hands-on gardening lessons, cooking classes, and leadership development programs for both the youth and adults. Learn more about Olivewood Garden's mission and programs here.

Master Plan Highlights:

  • A multi-purpose outdoor classroom
  • Terraced and shaded growing spaces
  • Natural Pond
  • Fruit Trees
  • Community spaces to gather
