South LA Edible Gardens

Feb 17th, 2011 by vanessa | 0

South Los Angeles, my new neighborhood since 2010, is home to kind and diverse people in a vibrate landscape situated between urban and suburban.  Yet even with its affordable, the area is lacking a much-needed component to a healthy lifestyle: fresh and inexpensive produce. Over the course of the last year, a group of us are joining others looking for an internal fix: helping set up edible gardens in South LA homes, and teaching folks how to care for their gardens.

Our goal is to empower community residents to grow delicious and organic fruits, vegetables and herbs right in their own backyard. Green Grounds (the name of our organization) hosts monthly “Dig-Ins,” free and open to all.   Check out our next Dig-In, February 26th, by keeping up-to-date at http://lagreengrounds.org.
