Millions March Against Monsanto Worldwide

(Fighting Monsanto's GMO technology is one of the most powerful motivating factors to forming a seed library.  The Seed Library Of Los Angeles holds as a core belief that our way of life and open pollinated seed are at risk as long as GMO plants are allowed to corrupt our plants with GMO pollen.  We believe that Los Angeles needs to be declared a GMO Free Zone that outlaws the planting of any GMO crop that might pollinate our crops. In keeping that in mind, we support this March against Monsanto.)

Every major city in the World is demonstrating against the deceit and coverups that chemical companies have been committing during the last 20 years regarding GMO's in our food supply. 

Monsanto & associates spent multi-millions to stop Prop 37 in California 
by lying to consumers and convincing the public that they don't need labeling of GMO's.
Vote with your dollars and eliminate these companies from your shopping list.

Monsanto has Congress in their pocket, recently passing HR 933 with section 735, referred
to as the Monsanto Protection act,

that puts Monsanto above Federal courts.  

It's time to take back what is naturally ours and that is our right to clean, fresh, wholesome foods without GMO's.

Show the world how important this issue is to you and your family.
United we are stronger!
Saturday May 25th

Recap: How To Grow The Best Food Gardens with David King May 4th

Here's something you don't see everyday: flowers
on a potato plant in The Learning Garden!

The excitement of warmer temperatures and David King's 1st Saturday of the month, "How to Grow the Best Food Gardens in Southern California," is so inspiring. May 4th, also held the distinction of being the 10th annual World Naked Gardening Day!  People around the world were encouraged to garden ‘au natural’.

We celebrated the final call for planting our best summer garden. The winter crops of lettuce, beets, carrots, broccoli & kale are now making room for the summer garden you envision. Planting all your choices by the end of May will cultivate the best results for tomatoes, cucumbers, basil, peppers, melons, zucchini, squash, green beans, eggplants and okra.

Learning how to arrange the garden, depending on whether the plant is wind pollinated (corn), bee pollinated (peppers) or self pollinating (beans) is so beneficial.. 

Transplanting your seedlings to the garden now  that the soil is getting warner, can have issues with air pockets. Watching the demonstration on how to push the air out and solidify the soil around the plant, makes the plant's root system strong.

Another issue that pops up, is watering too much or too little. This causes most of the brown and yellow leaves you see. David's tried and true testing, shows how to know for sure.

Finding our balance with nature and nurture starts with, soil rich in nutrients, proper pollination, direct sunlight or shade as needed by the particular plant and correct watering. Each plant variety has it's requirements and David shares his knowledge that helps take the guess work out and increases your garden's productivity.

Join us next month on Saturday Jun 1st at 10am, as we work together with Mother Nature in The Learning Garden, adding wonderment and enjoyment to your beautiful garden.
