Long Beach Bike Culture
The I AM Community is part of Long Beach's flourishing forward bike culture. One of our residents, Ben King cycles 50 + miles every other day. For his last birthday, he cycled as many miles as his age, which is 73.
Let's get cycling!
The I AM Community is only a 5 minute bike ride to the Pike and Aquarium. Progressive Long Beach has reinvented itself into a health conscious, bike friendly community. The many bike paths and lanes that surround the I AM Community will take to new adventures discovering Long Beach.
A 100% volunteer run not-for-profit urban agriculture organization working toward food security in Long Beach, CA.
Foodscape Long Beach is a 100% volunteer run not-for-profit urban agriculture organization, operating under fiscal sponsorship of the Catalyst Network of Communities (a 501c3 non-profit). Foodacape LB builds and maintains sustainable food production systems on underused land, teach agricultural literacy, and facilitate access to food and other resources.

We are here to demonstrate how well the resources at our disposal here can provide for everyone.
With your help, we can demonstrate how well the resources at our disposal can provide for everyone.
A modulation of our culture is necessary for a sustainable future, and we hope to accelerate that change.
Foodscape Long Beach exists as a resource for people looking for venues to learn agricultural literacy, permaculture, practice gardening and sustainable development, and to enjoy comradery and enchantment with nature.
Makes 2-3 burritos
1 package of extra firm tofu
2 T olive oil
½ onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 bunch mizuna greens, roughly chopped and stems removed (you can use any green you have on hand)
2 roma tomatoes, diced
2 tsp dried basil
1 tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
½ tsp tumeric
½ tsp black salt (kala namak, but if all you have is white/sea salt, that will be fine)
½ tsp Sriracha sauce
¼ cup vegetable broth
¼ cup nutritional yeast (heaping)
pepper to taste
½ avocado, diced
Remove tofu from its carton and let drain it sit in a strainer while you prepare your vegetables.
In a large pan, heat the oil over medium heat for about 30 seconds. Add the onion and sauté until the onion is translucent, and then add the garlic. Sauté both for about 2 minutes.
Tear the tofu into bite size chunks (not too small, but not too big) and add to the pan. Mix to combine. Let the tofu cook in the water it releases, stirring occasionally, letting it the tofu “brown.” If it starts to stick, add a little more water to deglaze the pan.
After about 15 minutes, once the tofu has a nice tan color, add your spices, Sriracha sauce, and vegetable broth. Mix to combine and sauté until liquid is gone. Add the nutritional yeast and mix to combine. Add the tomatoes and the mizuna and sauté until mizuna is wilted. Remove from heat.
Heat your tortillas over a stove burner, or in a pan on the stove, over medium-low heat, just giving each side a minute or two. Scoop about 1 – 1-¼ cup of the scramble onto each tortilla, and top with the diced avocado. Fold the outer ends of the tortilla over, and using the edge of the tortilla closest to you, roll up into a burrito. Serve warm with salsa and/or guacamole of choice.
For many here at the I AM Community and throughout Long Beach, yoga is a way of life.
- One of the highlights of living at the I Am Community is the Hatha Yoga classes by Dillon Carlyon, Thursdays at 5:00 p.m.
Another benefit is that we are centerally located close to the many yoga sources downtown. A 15 minute bike ride will take you to free/donation based Yoga in Bluff Park on Junipero and Ocean Boulevard.
