For two years, Pasadena Community Gardens has worked towards creating “eco-friendly, edible, and sustainable community gardens.”
Ground breaks on the site of former California Governor Henry Harrison Markham’s ranch house on Pasadena Avenue, north of Bellefontaine Street.
The event on Saturday, June 9th, from 9 a.m.-noon, will be the kickoff for a $80,000 fundraising campaign. Live music will be provided by Latin-Caribbean ensemble Domingo Siete, breakfast will be provided by Whole Foods Market-Arroyo, and the Perkup Coffee & Tea Truck will be on hand thanks to Jones Coffee Roasters. The morning will also offer prize drawings and self-guided garden tours.
Pasadena Community Gardens wants to provide a personal space for Pasadenans to grow vegetables, fruit, herbs, and flowers for a minimal annual fee, and an opportunity to learn about “environmental conservation, water-wise and sustainable native plants, and the nutritional value of growing fresh, healthy food.”
