Starting a Community Garden at Wilshire Library

In partnership with the Los Angeles Public Library and Friends of Wilshire Library, we started two organic raised-bed garden at the Wilshire Branch Library in Windsor Square. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with these awesome women who brought so much positive energy to the project. We even have a cute little green finger junior, Ashley, to join us for the adventures. We are hoping to turn this into a community garden and learning center for the library. There are still more to come: we are thinking of adding sunflowers along the side of the walls, and possibly adding some vertical gardening elements to the mix. The space is cozy and very conducive for community events and get-togethers. I will keep the project updated in future posts.
