About the Cafe

The Wellness Café is an edible education café at Desert Garden Montessori that is open to the public and the Desert Garden community. The café serves as a unique living classroom, providing holistic culinary experience and teaching a wide variety of life skills in an interactive environment. At its heart it is a dynamic and joyful learning experience for every child.


Our mission is to help students nurture a positive relationship with food, our bodies and our Earth, connect with community and establish life-long healthy habits.

Community Connections

The Wellness Café is a hub for growing healthy, nourished children and a healthier planet. By working with local farmers and artisans students connect with their local food community, build intergenerational relationships, become inspired to be a part of the local food movement and learn about where our food comes from.
