It has been unseasonably warm these last few days, but we are sure that will change. I know for events and classes we all want to have these nice warm days, but the plants in the Garden are NOT happy. Even though we want the warm sunny days for us (this last weekend was about as close to perfection for events and gardening that anyone could possibly desire!), the plants need cloudy, cool and, above all WET weather. Here's what we have planned for February - let's hope it's in accord with Mother Nature!

February 11th - The Garden will be closed in the afternoon unless we have some volunteers maintain the hours.
February 12th - Garden hours subject to volunteer availability until about noon
February 12th - 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM - Three local poets – Jill Lurie, Orchid Black and Tatiana Sulovska – are coming together to read their own words of
love and nature-inspired verses for this Valentine’s Day-themed event. For a $15 suggested donation, guests will enjoy the beautiful garden setting, delicious treats and refreshments and a signed copy of Jill Lurie’s book of poems entitled “Ginger Roots: Plantings of a Future Dreamer.”
February 16th - noon to 5:00 PM - Garden will be closed.
February 18th - 9:00 to 1:00 PM Westside Produce Exchange - see their Facebook page to join up with these wonderful community builders! February 18th - 2:30 PM Seed Library of Los Angeles (SLOLA), their February meeting - Albert Chang will report on what he learned at the Organic Seed Alliance on his ice-covered journey to the Organic Seed Growers Conference.
And don't forget, every Friday that the weather doesn't rain or blow the house down, we have a potluck on the picnic tables in the Garden, 12:30 to 2:30. Bring a dish for about 12, and your own plate and service ware - while we have a few vegetarians, we also have meat eaters and omnivores a plenty! Usually good conversation and eclectic people!
