The Slow Food Social Action Committee has organized a tour of Los Angeles Community Gardens with Al Renner. We will travel to five gardens and hear from the gardeners themselves about the joys and challenges of urban farming. We will visit Solano Canyon Garden, Crenshaw High School Garden, the 41 St. Community Garden, the Venice Learning Garden, and Wattles Community Garden, and will have a chance to purchase produce at the Farmer’s Market at the 41 St. Community Garden. The tour will begin and conclude at Angeli Caffe.
