Our friends at the Common Ground Garden Program have sent us the following invitation to an event this weekend:
In appreciation of our Learning Garden volunteers and to welcome new folks to our gardening family, join us for Pesto Day!
When: Saturday, September 25 from 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Where: The Learning Garden, Venice High School, 13000 Venice Blvd., Los Angeles
Cost: General admission is $5 at the gate
Pick basil and make fresh garden pesto with The Learning Garden community! Enjoy a light harvest supper out on our patio together with refreshments and music. Supper will include pasta with our famous Pesto Madness Pesto, spicy or sweet Italian sausage, Italian bread, and lemonade or ice tea.
For your purchasing pleasure we’ll have our Exquisite Basil Pesto, Culinary and Medicinal Herb Plants, Select Own-Root Roses (propagated by students), Garden Cards, and unexpected surprises as we think of them.

The Learning Garden
A garden, where one may enter in and forget the whole world, cannot be made in a week, nor a month, nor a year; it must be planned for, waited for, and loved into being. (Chinese proverb)
