Healthy Living

The “I AM” Community of Long Beach is a vegetarian community, promoting a healthy and active lifestyle.  We hold yoga & Qigong classes, support do-it-yourself gatherings and other life-enriching events at the community.  We encourage participation in creating nourishing vegetarian meals together — and in learning about food preparation and healthy eating habits from each other. 

All of our food scraps are composted and taken to the garden. We recycle everything the city of Long Beach will accept. Dishes and laundry are washed with the most environmentally friendly products.

The community is a two-minute bike ride from downtown Long Beach, the “bike friendly city”. A ten-minute bike ride to the beach. Biking and/or walking is encouraged to nearby local restaurants and stores.
