The Westside Permaculture Group and Sustainable Works in Santa Monica are sponsoring the “100 Garden Challenge” Saturday and Sunday, May 16th and 17th.

The event is intended to create

100 edible gardens in a single weekend to build and enhance the community, raise awareness about the benefits of locally grown organic produce, and inspire an appreciation of the gifts nature has to offer.

The community members taking part in the challenge are those who hope to maintain an edible garden and have land for a garden or fruit tree and space for potted plants.
