Orange Ave Guerrilla Garden

This guerrilla garden has three areas. We planted this guerrilla garden in October 2009. The grass had died in this spot but the other two areas still had grass.

In as few years the grass died off in the other areas. So we added more plants to those areas also.

But now the grass is making a comeback in some spots.

This is the same center median we gardened at last year with Occidental College for MLK Day of volunteerism.

I had a great time again doing a day of volunteering for MLK Day with the students from Occidental College, including some guys from Sigma Alpha Epsilon, and Jacob Vigos of URAA adding more plants to the garden we started last MLK Day.
