Farm Expansion

Project GoalWe have been invited to garden/farm on a portion of the LAUSD Vic and Bonnie Christensen Science Center (located at 2201 Barrywood Ave, San Pedro, CA 90731). This project is very large for our new (2.5 year old) organization, and we would really benefit from the volunteer help. Having this next section of the property ready for planting (and perhaps planted will) 1) beautify the property for the neighborhood and about a half dozen schools that regularly visit the property 2) will allow for the expansion of the Feed and be Fed program which gives opportunities for people of all ages to get their hands in the dirt, grow healthy food and share that food with those in need. 3) This expansion will allow the organization to host more garden education classes for all ages which are free to the community. 4) This expansion will also help increase the financial stability of the non-profit.
