This week has been a flurry of activity. Two dig-ins, over a hundred volunteers, from far and wide–North Hills, Orange County, Cerritos, Santa Monica, La Habra, Glendale, Pasadena, Lawndale, W Hollywood, Redlands, Inglewood, Sherman Oaks, Torrance, Encino, and Compton, as well as our beloved Los Angeles. And even the ice-cream truck stopped by.
And in new news, we got two lovely and substantial donations in hand.
One is a super-generous gift of $5000 from the CAA (Creative Artists Agency) Foundation based in Los Angeles. Their gift will help us build our infrastructures, so we can acquire, use and share resources like tools, seeds, and software. Many many thanks for your generosity!
The second one is another local donation–super-local, from a neighborhood council in LA, the North Area Neighborhood Development Council, based in a part of S LA where we have hosted several dig-ins. In LA, neighborhood councils are independent citizens groups housed in each neighborhood. Their support of our work based on results seen on the ground means a lot to us!
