The Garden is Off and Running

We had a great day on Sunday the 23d of February: Eagle Candidate Oliver Patterson, with the help of his cohorts and some friends, built 6 beautiful redwood beds for our demonstration garden. Everyone arrived with tools and ready to work, participants included two boy scout troops(one B.H. troop and one from a temple school in the Valley), one girl scout troop, the high school ecology club, members of one of our local churches, classmates from UCLA's horticulture program and my usual band of faithful gardeners.

When I looked around and saw all of the diverse community groups represented, I knew I was accomplishing my goal of drawing together people from our community to work together on a fun and educational project. I am looking forward to the future work of the garden and to seeing what Armstrong Nursery has in store for us in 2014! Thank you to Armstrong for your incredible generosity, to the City of Beverly Hills for allowing us to use the park, and to Whole Foods for lunch and moral support. Love, Garden Girl

P.S. I am forwarding this post to some of the newcomers who I met on Sunday. Please access the blog site, and sign up to receive future posts on the right hand side. Feel free to contact me either through the blog or on my personal email:
