More than 1,000 organically grown tomato, pepper, squash, basil, and other vegetable seedlings for sale—on a first come, first served basis, at the Eagle Rockdale Community Garden & Art Park on Sunday, April 6th. All varieties are said to be of heirloom quality and GMO-free. Industrial tomato cages will also be for sale.
This event is also an open house for the garden and park, which was “built in 2006 by neighbors.” The site currently has forty individual plots for growing food, ten communal beds, a native garden, a rainwater garden, a cob oven, and several art installations.
The garden was developed by TERA (The Eagle Rock Association) through the vision of Master Gardener Mary Tokita. The garden reclaimed an abandoned public right of way, which was put to productive use to be enjoyed by the entire community.
Refreshments, live music, a raffle, and a tour of the garden may be experienced throughout the day.
Proceeds from the event will go toward repair and maintenance costs of this volunteer-run garden, dedicated to food-growing and community.
“The park is a little gem…” declares Glenn of L.A. Bread Bakers.
