Los Angeles

Volunteer Opportunities This Weekend

Two opportunities for Slow Food Los Angeles members and friends to help local organizations help others:

At the 24th Street Elementary School: Nat Zappia, Director of the Garden School Foundation, invites Slow Food members and friends to come plant and eat in the school’s kitchen garden this Saturday, May 30. The school and garden are located at 2055 West 24th Street in Los Angeles (90018), and help is needed between 9:00am and noon.

No experience is necessary, but please bring work gloves and sunscreen. If you have tools you can share (shovels, pick axes, or rakes), please bring those, too.

Those interested may contact Nat at 310.699.2902 or by email to nat [at] gardenschoolfoundation [dot] org
