L.A. CAN showing us how a community garden in Skid Row is done

I am happy to know that the L.A. Times has featured an article on L.A. CAN’s (Community Action Network) community garden. This community garden might be the 1st of its kind in Skid Row or the more appropriate term, Central City East. This is just another great example of how this great grass roots organization continues to see the needs of the community and rather than relying on city officials, they do it zapatista style and build their own. Here is the article to read more about the garden and what they have been growing.

On another note, here is an article where LA CAN’s co director, Becky Dennison was quoted regarding HACLA’s plan to convert 6,800 public housing units into Section 8 units.

Much love to L.A. CAN and the work they continue to do.

 

ALL POWER
TO THE PEOPLE!!!
