Taken directly from the LA Community Garden Council.
“The Gaffey Street Community Garden in San Pedro was founded more than 40 years ago on a 4-acre site owned by the Los Angeles City Bureau of Sanitation, one mile west of the port of San Pedro and alongside the 110 freeway. There are 200 families working 15’ x 15’ plots to grow healthy food in the garden. Los Angeles Community Garden Council is working to revitalize this garden and we have hired a consultant community organizer to work with the gardeners to organize an effective volunteer management team and regular gardener meetings. ”
–They are going to Revitalize the garden
-Hired a Consultant to organize a volunteer management team of gardeners
Revitalize is a big word, but what does it mean? I don’t know what their scope is when calling it a revitalization. Will wait to see more as the days get closer.
Not sure who the consultant is, but hey, if this is what it takes to get Carlos and the existing “Board” gone, then so be it.
This project is listed below 4 other projects. This means our San Pedro Community Gardens will still not have water for a few more years – its already been 3 years.
I hope the Los Angeles Community Garden Council can help provide us with a temporary water solution before coming in to revitalize our gardens.
I have been informed that new water piping has recently been completed in area 7.
Not sure why area 7 piping was changed or upgraded, because area 13 and 15 have ZERO water for the last 2 years. They should be priority areas for new water piping.
Send me updated information to be posted here for all of us to be updated – here.
