Hollywood Community Garden

The best-kept secret in Los Feliz, our congregation offers small Community Garden plots at 1755 N. New Hampshire for neighbors who are looking for a plot of earth to cultivate food or flowers.

In the summer of 2007, the 4,000 square feet for the Garden was cleared of brush and trash, and extensively re-worked by Eagle Scout Jamus Hain, to prepare the space for community garden plots.  (He also made and distributed the poster at right, so that people would know about this opportunity.)

Hollwood Lutheran Church provides the water and the land.  You bring the seeds or seedlings, the tools and labor.  Everything is run on an honor system.  There are small aluminum sheds on the edge of the Garden to store your tools and supplies.  There are benches to rest under the trees also.

Spring is coming!  Tell your friends that the Community Garden still has space available for gardening! 

 

Our only request is that you consider offering back a "tithe" --- a tenth --- of what you grow to the Community Food Pantry so that we can all help the poor and hungry.

If you're interested in tilling the soil in the Community Garden, please contact the Church Office at (323) 667-1212, or speak directly with Pastor Dan.
