The first annual "HomeGrown Culver City" is a FREE event that celebrates backyard edible gardening, sustainable gardening, and an ecological lifestyle.
This event seeks to unite people and organizations dedicated to teaching and fostering organic gardening in an effort to strengthen the local community of urban farmers.
People of all skill levels who are interested in the organic gardening movement will find an array of hands-on workshops dedicated to various disciplines of backyard farming.
This family-friendly celebration brings together a host of edible garden designers and specialists in the fields of composting, vermiculture, master gardeners, permaculture, bee keeping, and backyard chickens for a series of educational sessions and exhibits. Other participants will include organic soil and fertilizer companies, edible plant growers, and seed companies. Several independent specialty vendors will also be on-site to serve delicious foods made with natural and local ingredients.
Scheduled workshops and demonstrations will take place throughout the day. Local musicians will provide live entertainment and kids will enjoy a performance by a local children’s theater (among other fun activities).
