LA Conservation Corps Plants Garden at Mayor’s House


From the LA Conservation Corps Newsletter

On August 7th, the LA Corps participated in a garden dedication ceremony at Getty House, the residence of Mayor Antonio Villarigosa in Los Angeles. One of our Young Adult Corps crews helped build and plant a small vegetable garden that included six dwarf fruit trees, tomatoes, squash, peppers, basil, cilantro and other edibles. The Mayor expressed his thanks for the collaborative effort, which involved the City of Los Angeles General Services Department, Department of Engineering, Recreation and Parks, Getty House Foundation, LA Neighborhood Land Trust, and the LA Conservation Corps.
