Local Green Gardening

Yesterday, we had our first meeting of a local group of neighborhood residents interested in "green" gardening. We met each other through a sign-up sheet coordinated by Jesse Chang during the Monterey Park Earth Day Festival.

We talked about our possible goals. Besides an organic gardening and seeds/plants exchange group, there were more ambitious visions of developing a local community food bank of fresh fruits and vegetables. Imagine all the food that could be generated from people's backyard gardens! Dream.

Then we exchanged some plants. I took some tangerine tree seedlings, and brought home a green grape tomato seedling and some compost. Wow! Maybe only true organic gardeners could get excited about compost material and seeing rabbit poop.

I'm looking forward to future meetings.
