On April 28 more than 50 L.A. Works volunteers commemorated the civil response to the community unrest 20 years ago as they planted herbs, spread mulch, pulled weeds, and cleared the site where a grocery store had burned down during the '92 riots. The site had remained empty until last year when volunteers from L.A. Works put in the first big push in transforming the site into a community garden. In partnership with Community Services Unlimited and Community Build, by this time next year the garden will have an arbor and gravel path, a fountain with benches for the community and raised beds where vegetables, fruit and herbs will be grown in order to provide the community with affordable, healthy produce. The spirit of hope and promise for the future of this neighborhood was in the hearts and minds of the volunteers as they looked forward and got to work at this special site on this special day.
