The Growing Experience is hosting our 3rd Annual Earth Day Celebration at the urban farm on Thursday, April 26 from 3-6:00 pm (attached is a flyer). The event is open to the public, free of charge, and features education and information for community residents throughout Long Beach and surrounding cities, on sustainable urban agriculture, creating local food systems, energy/resource conservation, and community building.
As a community leader, you are invited to host a table/booth to showcase your organization/program/project/civic leadership/etc, and to inform the community about the valuable resources you provide.
Seperately, I am also looking for individuals to conduct workshops/demonstrations on possible topics such as: 1) Simple food preservation techniques, 2) Container Gardening with edibles, 3) Arts/Crafts Projects with recycled materials, 4) Vermicomposting, 5) Herbal home remedies, 6) Home Practices for Chickens/Bees. For these workshops, I may have small stipends available for your expertise and supplies needed. Please contact me if you are interested or have other related topic areas of interest.
I look forward to your participation in our Earth Day event and to get the word out to the greater community on all the great things you are doing in Long Beach and beyond!
Please feel free to pass this along to others who may be interested.
