LA County victory garden initiative

There's a new victory garden and a new blog coming to a town near you.

The UC Cooperative Extension is revving up a blog and their first post is to offer gardening classes at 10 places around Los Angeles in an effort to revitalize the victory garden. They note a recent sharp rise in food gardening and the recession as drivers for the classes and it appears that there's plans for regular gardening circles to let people kibbutz and trade produce.

This is the one near me:
 Lawndale Library
  Training will be held March 27, April 10, 17 and 24, from 10 am to 1 pm.
  To register or for more information contact Kris Lauritson, klor5 at aol com, or (310) 890-1460

There's more information here about the victory garden intiative which appears to be state wide, so look for one near you!
