Got an extra handful of carrot seed? Carrots being sown in the Garden a while back - we had to get five pounds of carrots to pay off Mike McGrath (it was a baseball bet... don't ask... some of us are still sore).
In conjunction with Environmental Change Makers in Westchester, The Learning Garden will have our first ever seed swap on our patio, February 6, from 1 to 3 PM.
Bring your packets (or handfuls!) of extra seed and swap it out for something new you've always wanted to try! (You don't need 'handfuls' - just a few seeds you want to exchange for something else.) The Garden has a bunch of seeds we'll be swapping - vegetables at least. We'll also have a few plants for sale.
We'll have hot coffee and tea so bring your own mug (and sweetener) and remember; the patio is always cooler than the rest of the LA Basin so dress warmly. Event is canceled in case of rain - I know WE can take it, but wet seeds are not helpful.
The Learning Garden is located on the grounds of Venice High School, at the corner of Walgrove Avenue and Venice Boulevard. You can see our mission and founding on our web page - the links for the newsletter and events are broken until we can hire the help to fix it, but it is still a good introduction to the Garden.
Events are listed here or you can contact me on Facebook and ask to be on our email newsletter list (+/- once a month).
