Earthday Weekend Festivities

SixTwelve will host a weekend of sustainable activities on April 22-April 23, 2016, to celebrate Earthday.

Three days of celebration will consist of:

Friday, April 22 - Noon-1:00pm (Free) 

Ceremonial Tree Planting

We love trees here at SixTwelve and what better excuse to plant one than Earthday. Join us for light snacks as we plant a ceremonial tree that will produce food for years to come.

Saturday, April 23 - 4:00pm-6:00pm (Free)

Friendship Seed & Plant Exchange

SixTwelve works toward a community based around growing food. The Friendship Seed & Plant Exchange is a chance for local gardeners and farmers to connect with others who enjoy connecting to nature through growing plants and food. Garden leftovers and plants that need new homes are ideal for sharing at this gathering. The event is open to new and experienced growers.

Saturday, April 23, 6:00pm-7:00pm (Free)

Community Trash Free Potluck

Participants can bring a potluck dish (vegetarian appreciated but not necessary) to share in a community meal. This is a no trash event so bring your own reuseable plate, silverware and drinks. 

Saturday, April 23, 7:00pm-8:20pm (Donations Accepted)

Can You Dig This (Film)

Can You Dig This explores the urban gardening revolution currently taking place in South Central Los Angeles, one of the largest food deserts in the country. We follow the inspirational personal journeys of five ‘gangster gardeners,’ all planting the seeds for a better life.
