On Saturday, July 17, 2010 from 9:00 am – 12:00pm The Venice Learning Garden at Venice High will have an open house -garden party – community planting party and free lunch starting at noon.
There will be music, face-painting, stilt walkers, guided tours of the garden, information on plants and gardening and giveaways of plants “if some are ready to be taken home”.
From the Learning Garden:
We will do our best to connect you with at least one task you love and/or help you discover another that might feed your soul as much as the food will feed your body:
-digging in the dirt
-building a trellis
-forming a planting bed
-light sprinkling of path covering
-heavy lifting (if you want to skip the gym for the day;-)
-something else that’s calling out to you
Bring work gloves. Dress to get sweaty, maybe dirty (from the digging and/or the dancing)
And we will finish with something we all love: Delicious Food! Lunch and snacks courtesy of Whole Foods Venice. Lunch begins at noon, so leave some time after to stay for that. Come for the whole morning if you can, but if you can’t, be there as long as you are able.
All you Westsiders, start your weekend seeing your friends, and meeting new ones, in the Garden. If you are not a Westsider, come over and join us, then spend Saturday afternoon at the beach.
If you are a musician, come and jam for a bit. Maybe be a wandering troubador in the plant kingdom.
And take a tour of the Bio-bus.
(I mentioned there’s a fabulous free lunch, right?)
Play at community building in the garden to start your weekend with some serious fun. Pachamama (Mother Earth) will thank you.
Bring your family, tell your friends. Bring your friends, tell your family.
