03.15.2011 Urban Homestead

The LA Times, Urban homesteaders find ideal ground in Altadena, wrote about urban farming in the local neighborhood of Altadena. They focus on the Zorthian Ranch, were art and farming are mixed.

Zorthian Ranch has beehives, horses, goats, chickens, and llamas (which are owned by a friend).

Check out the photos at the LA Times Website.

Meeting Tuesday, March 15

Just a reminder that there will be a PCC Seeds of Change meeting tomorrow in E320 (not at the organic garden).

Same time: 12 - 1 p.m.

AND… Sorry to disappoint you, but we are not having a healthy food fest tomorrow.

We postponed it couple of weeks behind because I have a master plan for it!!! I DO, I DO!
I am just saving the good stuff for later.

SO… Keep coming to the meetings! he he he.

If you need to buy lunch first, or don’t get out of your class a bit later than 12, Please don’t feel weird for coming in late.

SEE YOU TOMORROW!! WOO HOO!

Best regards,
Maggie Lee :D
