Big Sunday

Big Sunday Weekend 2010 will be on May 1 and 2. As always, there will be hundreds of ways for you to pitch in, help out, and give back throughout Southern California. And, as always, whoever you are, whatever you do, we can use your help!Here’s some news for you:

It’s not too early to find out how to get your school, faith group, business, club, nonprofit – or even your town – involved in Big Sunday. We’ll be hosting our famous Big Sunday info meetings again this year. The first one will be from 3 PM to 5 PM onSunday, November 8th at our office, 7319 Beverly Blvd., L.A., CA 90036. Find out what’s new for 2010, and some of the great ways your community can help others, be helped, or some of both. There will be good food, good vibes, free parking, and no commitment.

Everyone is welcome! To RSVP, please go to: Or on Facebook:

Ecoliteracy Workshop @ Milagro Allegro Community Garden

Ecoliteracy Workshop

Ecoliteracy is about learning to understand the language of place. It is the foundation of all beautiful organic gardens that grow with little or no fertilizer or chemical pesticides and with less maintenance and water than conventional gardens. To be ecoliterate is to be versed in Nature’s language. Learning it is easier than you might think!

LA Urban Chickens...

The Los Angeles Urban Chicken Enthusiasts have had two meetings since forming in August 2009. We have an upcoming meeting November 14 at 2:00pm and hope to meet regularly every month. So far our meetings involve a lot of sharing of information between more experienced chicken keepers and those who want to get chickens or are otherwise just starting out. We rotate around the Los Angeles area for each meeting, gathering at a different member's home each time. The goal of the group is to foster community and to provide information and advice on urban chicken keeping.
