This unofficial posting was posted at the San Pedro Community Gardens.
The content may lead some to believe this is an official notice from Mayor Buscaino’s office and other groups involved in the garden renovation, but based on the following reasons it is not:
- The tone was not professional and very confrontational
- The content was questionable with no record keeping for paying of fees
- Logos from Mayor Buscaino’s office, Lott to Plot, and the LA Garden Council not on the document
- This notice was visible in a few limited places
This goes to the bigger questions of who and where should these official notices be posted to be credible.
Leadership needs to abide by a set of rules to have a dedicated and secure posting area. Postings also need to include the official logos for credibility, otherwise they are fake news.
This prevents unofficial postings and reduces confusion among gardeners during a time of transition to the new water system.
Lastly, those individuals who post these fake postings should be removed from the garden and lose gardening privileges for disseminating the wrong information on behalf of the organizations involved in the renovation.
