The Time Is Now: April 2022 Newsletter
An old fashioned photo dump and a call to action!
April has been a busy month in The Learning Garden and probably in your garden as well. Spring has sprung in Southern California. The poppies are in full bloom and the summer seedlings are just about ready to be transplanted.
We need all the help we can get in the coming weeks - weeding, planting seedlings, and getting the garden in shape for the spoils of summer. Volunteers welcome, as always, from 12-3 on Saturdays and Sundays.
This month the Medicine Wheel Garden was started. A final frontier of sorts in our campaign to re-build TLG. And now, we hope, is the time to usher in a new phase.
Next week, Wednesday, May 4th, there will be a zoom meeting open to the community about the future of the garden space at Venice High School. AKA the future of The Learning Garden. As many of you know, we’ve had a temporary contract that’s kept us from having in-person events, classes and workshops. We need to have the support of our community to bring them back. If you’d like to attend the meeting in support of The Learning Garden - you’re invited! Flyer below… here is the meeting link ;).
In other news, here are a few fun things that happened in April.
Mr. Bailey had a workday with VHS and Mark Twain Middle students and families.
Felicia gave away sunflower seedlings at a Tree People tree giveaway at Marina Del Rey middle school.
The chinaberry tree bloomed in the TCM garden and the fragrance was amazing.
Volunteers, Nia and Nick, helped plant chamomile in the tea garden.
Volunteers did some work in the garden while having a silent disco.
A trellis was built out of bamboo to support the blackberries in the Fiber Arts garden.
The poppies popped and the Rainbow garden finally has color.
Thank you for all your support.

See you in the garden.
