Growing Community in the Garden
EVENT: Saturday, March 12 from 1:00 to 5:00pm
Let food be thy medicine; and medicine thy food. –Hippocrates
If food is good, then medicine is of no need, if food is not good, then medicine is of no use. –Charaka Samhita
In the teachings of ancient and indigenous forms of medicine throughout the world, including the art and science of Ayurveda, our foods and our medicines are combined. We know that food heals us, and this can be especially true when we receive food or medicine directly from the Earth, in our local regions, connected through our communities.
Now is the time to reclaim our ability to grow and utilize our own food and medicine and to come together in community to create and maintain vibrant green spaces. The Learning Garden is a nonprofit teaching garden located at Walgrove Avenue and Venice Boulevard in Venice, California. It was founded as a demonstration and teaching garden by Julie Mann and David Crow as part of an initiative to replant the global garden and give people the knowledge, inspiration and examples necessary to become gardeners of food and medicine.
Join the California Association of Ayurvedic Medicine, the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Center of Los Angeles, LA YOGA Ayurveda and Health Magazine and The Learning Garden at Venice High School and volunteer for a day where we will be preparing the Ayurvedic teaching garden in the space.
This is a family-friendly event and an opportunity for all of us to share space and get our hands dirty together. The long-term goal is to have a place where people can plant, grow, watch, photograph, taste, smell, harvest, and enjoy Ayurvedic herbs growing in our local region.
