13000 Venice Blvd Corner of Walgrove and Venice. 2:30 pm
The Venice Branch is where the first roots of the Seed Library of Los Angeles began to sink in to deep waters. Founded in 2001 by David King, The Learning Garden has hosted our 501c3 graciously. With 1 acre of community garden space members are encouraged to volunteer with the ongoing seed gardens to learn about safe seed practices. Our goal is to create a community of strong seed savers through food justice and awareness.
Every 3rd Saturday of the Month at 2:30pm we meet on the patio of The Learning Garden at Venice High School.
June 2019 - Pulses
Beans, Legumes, & Pulses are some of the best seeds to learn Seed Saving. The large seeds are colorful jewels in the harvest basket and as self pollinating plants they are the epitome of heirloom treasure. This Warm Season, choose a bean of your liking to steward for summer 2019. Seed Library Chair Azita Banu will take you through some of the history and key notes for healthy beans. Every meeting members exchange seed. Come early to discuss with other SLOLA Members which beans to choose! Community is one of the symptoms of seed saving.
