Great News About South Central Farm in Los Angeles

  • Subject: [cg] Great News About South Central Farm in Los Angeles

Despite all the publicity about the loss of the South Central Farm in Los 
Angeles, there's great news:  most of the gardeners have already found new 
gardens to grow their vegetables and fruits and establish new 
friendships.  Ever since the first threat of the sale of the property, much 
effort has gone into identifying alternative gardening sites and moving 
gardeners there.  This has included starting several new community gardens 
and joining numerous existing gardens.  Staff and volunteers from several 
organizations have made this possible, including the Los Angeles Regional 
Food Bank, Councilperson Jan Perry's office, other Los Angeles Council 
districts, the Los Angeles Community Garden Council, and University of 
California Cooperative Extension Common Ground Garden Program and its 
Master Gardeners (6 of whom have been from the South Central Farm during 
this time).  Gardeners want to garden, and LA is all the greener for it!

Ciao for now.

Since 1977, volunteers of the Common Ground Garden Program have helped 
low-income and limited-resource county residents to grow and eat more 
nutritious vegetables and fruits.  Programs include Master Gardener 
volunteers (seasonal gardening presentations) and Fresh From The Garden 
volunteers (simple nutrition and food safety presentations).  We work 
primarily with community gardens, school gardens, seniors, and homeless and 
battered women's shelters.
