Want that green thumb all your Echo Park neighbors seem to have? Now you get a chance to learn how to grow your own vegetables in your very own garden. The Echo Curio will be hosting weekly courses led be Grow LA: Victory Garden Initiative starting this weekend!
Every Sunday in October, the workshop will teach you how to start your own garden for your backyard in containers or at a community garden site.
The initiative brings together local families and neighborhoods to share their experiences, skills and produce. Participants are able to turn this new interest in gardening into successful, productive gardens that will generate positive changes in their homes by helping to lower grocery bills and enhance opportunities to eat healthy food.
Sounds like a great idea! Classes are $20 each, or $70 for all four classes.
