While living in Venice for a few years, we had success growing tomatoes, herbs, onions, lettuce and peppers. Two months ago we moved to Pasadena and bought our first home. We plan to grow an abundance of edibles that will hopefully rival the harvests from our previous west side pad.
The Home Growers Circle would be a great beginning and opportunity to inspire and educate us as we create a new garden in our new home. In addition, we would love to be a part of this community that supports homegrown food in Los Angeles.
Malika often documented our Venice garden trials at locallosangeles.blogspot.com. We are excited at the prospect of continuing to share our experiences with the local community encouraging more people to grow their own food.
