UC Cooperative Extension in Los Angeles County is pleased to launch the "Grow LA Victory Garden Initiative" in March and April 2010 for those who wish to grow their own fresh fruits and vegetables. This initiative will help new gardeners learn to start their own gardens quickly and easily in a container, in the backyard or at a community garden, bringing together local families and neighborhoods to share their experiences, skills and produce. Participants will be able to turn this new interest in gardening into successful, productive gardens that will generate positive changes in their homes by helping to lower grocery bills and enhance opportunities to eat healthy, nutritious foods.

For more information on the initiative, please contact Yvonne Savio, Common Ground Garden program manager, at (323) 260-3407, ydsavio@ucdavis.edu.

For information on the individual classes, please check the Calendar listings on Cooperative Extension's Web site.
