Community healing gardens
Organized by: Grant Gottfurcht
A community initiative is sprouting in Venice: The planting of garden boxes to grow organic produce. The planning, building, and sowing has begun— and will continue through the end of the year with the goal of planting organic 400 boxes & 999 Fruit trees. LA native Grant Gottfurcht, founder of the Yoga Collective on Rose in Venice, planted the seed for the Community Healing Gardens project. He wanted to unite everyone in the community for a common cause to provide organic nutritious food for all children and families in need. Word has spread and a team of volunteers has shown up willing to build, plant, and nurture the gardens. Kids are contributing signage, completed by uplifting messages. The food grown will be shared amongst the neighborhood and donated to those in need of organically grown nutritious food.
