Westside Produce Exchange

EVENT DATE: Saturday, January 25, 12:00 p.m.
VENUE: The Learning Garden, 13000 Venice Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90066 (enter on Walgrove)

The Westside Produce Exchange is a monthly opt-in exchange among neighbors who want to share what they're growing in their gardens. By contributing your latest crop of seasonal fruits and vegetables, you come away with a variety of other delicious foods you might not have in your own garden.

1. Fresh organic produce: fruits, vegetables, or edible herbs (no non-edible herbs, such as burning sage).
2. Fresh, beautiful, vase-ready flowers (no weeds or quick-wilters, please).
3. Fresh baked goods, preserves, or other individual prepared food items. Participants who want to take baked goods and prepared foods are encouraged to bring their own reusable containers for transporting them.

Participants may drop off bags of produce between 9:00 a.m. and noon on Saturday at the Learning Garden at Venice High School. Park on Walgrove and enter the garden through the chain link gate located just south of Venice Blvd. Each bag should be labeled with the participant's name, phone number, and address.

Bagging volunteers will be needed to count everything and redistribute it at noon. Delivery volunteers will be needed to deliver at 2:00 p.m. Each driver will only have two deliveries to make—all nearby—and every attempt will be made to pair drivers with drop-offs close to their homes.

There are key dates by which the organizer must receive your RSVP every month. To get on the e-mail list and join this month's produce exchange, please e-mail
