Springtime Events in the Garden

Springtime at the East LA Learning Garden has been filled with very fun and informative events and classes. On April 23rd we hosted a Volunteer Event with PVH, one of the largest global apparel companies. More than a dozen of their employees came to help us with general gardening maintenance. Check out the photos attached!

Our Master Gardeners, including UC Master Gardener Michelle Segura & Mujeres De Maiz lead a series of victory garden classes titled “Organic Edible Gardening 101”. This was a beginner's level series with classes which combined lectures, guest speakers and hands-on work in the garden. All students had the opportunity to take home plenty of seeds, plants, and other goodies throughout the series.

Other improvements to the garden made by our Corpsmembers include:

  • The laying of waddle on the hillsides and the use of recycled concrete for tree wells.
  • The addition of 5 cubic yards of mulch along the walking path.
  • We also received 25 cubic yards of mulch and 5 cubic yards of compost to be added to our garden.

Thank you to all of our donors for continuing to make these opportunities possible for our corpsmembers and our community. Thanks to you, this urban garden thriving better than ever!

If you’re interested in visiting our special garden, please contact me at tleung@lacorps.org or come by on our Harvest days, which take place on Sundays from 9am to 1pm. Remember to bring your baskets or reusable bag to take home some veggies! 

Thank you again for all of your support!
