Food Co-op: Potluck, gardening, free market

The free food garden in front of the future store of the Arroyo Food Co-op on Wilson Avenue has steadily been taking shape. Drawn together by Transition Pasadena, the volunteers around Sylvia Holmes have dug, mulched and planted California native plants and fruit trees. What used to be a boring old patch of water-guzzling grass now looks fresh and ready to thrive.

But there is still more work to do. To help make it happen, TP is making this Saturday, April 19, a day of barn-raising with a zero waste potluck, sidewalk chalk art for the children and a really, really free market. Gardening goals include building a garden path and sheet mulching the vegetable garden.
