Guest Speaker at SLOLA Meeting in Venice

Seed Library of Los Angeles (SLOLA) is dedicated to preserving an open-pollinated, non-GMO supply of seeds, regionalized to the Los Angeles basin, and educating the public on how to save those seeds.

September also happened to be Childhood Obesity Awareness Month so I wanted to use this opportunity to bring awareness the the connection of health, gardening, and seed saving. My topic of presentation was "Discover Nutrition & Gardening Resources in Your Community."
