Time to Grow Your Own Vegetables?

Have you been dreaming about growing your own vegetables but just didn’t know how to get started?

Many of us hesitate because we think of the backbreaking work involved or feel we need a large area to get started. In fact you can start a garden easily in a container or a section of your own backyard.

For those of us who want to lower our grocery bills and create our own fresh vegetable garden, the University of California Cooperative Extension is launching a “Grow LA Victory Garden Initiative” in different locations all over the city. During the month of April, St. Elmos Village will be hosting a unique opportunity for novice garden growers in our community.

There is nothing quite like going into the garden first thing in the morning to see how your garden grows or picking fresh herbs or vegetables for dinner.

The St Elmo Village course will cost $7 per workshop, or $20 for the four-class series. It will be held from 1 – 4 pm on Saturdays,  April 9, 16, 23, and 30th at 4830 St. Elmo Dr. LA 90019. Between Washington and Venice, east of La Brea.  Space is limited and advanced registration is requested. Spanish translation will be provided. For more info contact Daniela Yanez at 323.549.9640.
