The Eagle Rockdale Community Garden & Art Park host its 2nd Annual Open House & Seedling
Sunday, April 6, 10 am – 4 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
Over a thousand organically grown, GMO-free heirloom vegetable and herb seedlings will be available for sale, including several varieties of tomatoes, peppers, squash, and basil. Large tomato cages will also be available for purchase.
Refreshments, live music by guitarist Franck Balloffett, a prize raffle and gardener-guided tours are also included.
Proceeds will go toward repair and maintenance costs at the garden, which is operated entirely by volunteers.
The Eagle Rockdale Community Garden is located on 1003 Rockdale Avenue in a residential neighborhood, just south of Shelby-Lanark Park. The garden is just one street west of Pasadena, near Figueroa Blvd at La Loma.
Eagle Rockdale is dedicated to organic food growing by local residents with approximately 45 individual garden plots,10 communal plots, a rainwater garden, California native garden, a COB oven, and several installations donated by local artists. One of Eagle Rock’s “hidden treasures,” the garden was founded in 2006 on a former right-of-way for the old LA Railway.
