If you’re a local and have idle hands tomorrow, our friends at the Community Garden at Holy Nativity could use your help:
On Friday June 24, Eagle scout candidate Taylor Martin will hold a workday for his Eagle project. And Taylor needs a bit of help. Taylor’s project extends the Community Garden at Holy Nativity. His team has already removed a large area of lawn, and on Friday they’ll be planting six fruit trees. It will transform the entrance to the church.
Friday is supposed to be Taylor’s completion date, and there’s still a lot to do:
- installing headerboard (9am)
- composting the planting areas (morning)
- planting trees, flowers, vegetables (afternoon)
- assembling benches (all day)
It’s a fun chance to work with an (exuberant) team of young scouts and to help get another section of food gardens built.
Start time is 9am, and we’ll continue all day until it’s done. Bring your own garden gloves. If you’d like to help with assembling benches, bring your own toolbox. Although much of the project site is in the shade, we recommend sun hats / sun protection.
The Garden is at 6700 West 83rd in Westchester – Los Angeles 90045. Please RSVP if you can come.
If you can’t make it on Friday, the Environmental Change-Makers will hold a separate workday later this summer to install a meditative labyrinth that will be open to the general public. Taylor’s project creates an embracing space for this special addition to the garden.
