Mark Gibney, our volunteer electrician, shows Julie Mann, TLG co-founder and Treasurer, how the new solar light will light our sign at the intersection of Walgrove and Venice Blvd. Through a grant from the Venice Community Council, The Learning Garden has been able to purchase several security lights, a light for our sign and several flood lights for the patio when we have events. The solar collector is placed just behind the sign on an angle that nets it sufficent sun to power the light. The light itself is an LED so it doesn't need a lot of juice.
This just another step in the evolution of The Learning Garden as a beacon of change for the community.
