Free Florence-Firestone community gardens workshop

Always wanted a green thumb?

Join the office of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas and the Los Angeles Community Garden Council for an “Introduction to Gardening Workshop.” This free course for beginner gardeners will teach the basics about what to plant when, how to choose the right plants for each season and how to grow vegetables and herb plants organically. The course is open to everyone, but plots at the community garden are designated for residents of the Florence-Firestone community.

The workshop will be held Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Florence-Firestone Community Garden on Pace Ave and 98th Street.
