EarthWorks Enterprises and the American Community Gardening Association Conference

From EarthWorks Enterprises, an announcement for those who may be attending this weekend’s American Community Garden Association conference:

EarthWorks Enterprises is planning to host American Community Gardening Association visitors from 11:00am to 2:30pm on Saturday, August 12, at the EarthWorks Urban farm in the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area. We will be providing chips, salsa (made from farm ingredients), guacamole and bottled water and a nice shaded area where they can eat their box lunch. A cooking demo by Bon Appetit of Whittier College, using our farm ingredients, will take place during lunch. (Bon Appetit is a first-rate restaurant, so the samples are sure to please!) Following lunch, our program youth will conduct farm tours and talk about our program. Attendees can then chose to help us prepare beds for our future Native Plant Education Garden, turn compost, or, for those less physically inclined, weed our vegetable rows using a hula hoe or peel garlic. All the activities will take place with our program youth, staff and volunteers. Community members are welcome to join. For more information please call 562.968.1935 or email info@ewent.org.
