Our local Neighborhood Council for the part of Melrose Village west of La Brea Ave. – Mid City West Community Council (MCW) – is having a special event at Poinsettia Park on Sunday, May 17th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This MCW event – a follow up to their 2013 Harvest Festival held in Pan Pacific Park – will focus on a variety of sustainability topics, with plenty of FREE food and fun mixed in with information and activities. And this time they are bringing it to Melrose Village.
There will be many activities, services, and organizations at the Festival.
Bring your bike and have it checked out by LaBrea Bike Works before going on a community ride. Get landscaping and water conservation ideas from local organizations including home improvement retailer OSH and nonprofit Greywater Action. Stop for a demonstration by Liberation Yoga and learn about all the activities at the Poinsettia Recreation Center. Learn how to make seed bombs at a free workshop. And give feedback on a future redesign of the Rosewood Gardens pocket park.
There will also be live entertainment and food. Chat about cooking with Rascal chef Andy Lee, who will be providing samples of some of his creations. Other goodies will be provided by Whole Foods, Milk and Canter’s.
Find out what’s going on with development plans in the Mid City West territory, chat with Mayor Garcetti’s sustainability team, and learn about the programs of Jewish Family Services and other organizations. City agencies participating in the Green Fest include the Los Angeles Police Department, the LAFD CERT Neighborhood Team Program, and the Bureau of Sanitation‘s One Water LA program.
Be sure to sign in at the MCW booth so you’ll be part of the drawings throughout the event with prizes including cultural outings to the New Urbanism Film Festival and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, food outings to Pink’s and Tom Bergin’s, and other prizes.
