What up from Highland Park! We're Warren and Lovejoy Ontiveros, and we're excited to partner with Forage to create community, build local economy, and share good food. As Los Angeles natives, we both had memorable experiences growing food when we were kids, and when our children were born, we eagerly got our hands back in the dirt to share that heritage with them. We began gardening as a family in the small side yard of our former apartment, reaping abundant harvests from self-watering containers and raised beds. When that came to an end, we were grateful to snag an opening for a plot at Eagle Rockdale Community Garden, where we learned to value the wisdom of other gardeners as well as to trust our own instinct, research, and observations. We currently garden at Milagro Allegro Community Garden and in our own backyard. We're working towards a permaculture model that seeks to imitate nature, emphasizing biodiversity, biointensive planting, and sustainability. Our garden benefits from our compost and vermicompost systems; it also gets lots of love from our honeybees. We're looking forward to keeping chickens soon!
