Fountain Community Gardens Fundraiser

In May 2009, the City of Los Angeles, Los Angeles Community Garden Council, and the Los Angeles Conservation Corps worked with community members to create the Fountain Community Gardens (5620 Fountain Ave) in Hollywood.

The garden currently supports 65 plots and is tended by more than 100 gardeners from different ethnic backgrounds, age groups, and economic classes. In addition, several local community organizations such as Project Angel Food, Thai Community Development Corporation, Thai Health Center, Leaders de la Comunidad en Accion, and the LACER after-school program maintain plots. The garden also contains sections that support California native plants, two communal herb gardens, a citrus grove, and more.

To celebrate our one-year anniversary, FCG is hosting a fundraising event at the garden on Sunday, May 2, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The event will include live music, food, and a raffle. Funds raised will help pay for operating expenses such as water, garden tools, and repairs and improvements to the plant beds.
