Family Ride
This month’s ride will take place on Saturday April 16th, 10am-1pm (rather than the last Sunday of the month, which is Easter). We will tour the area around Linwood Howe Elementary School, which will be made safer for walking and biking through a Safe Routes To School grant. Here’s the route map. The ride will start and end on the Linwood Howe yard, 4100 Irving Place. Come at 10am, since we’ll be leaving earlier than usual, and bring a sack lunch – we’ll have a picnic on the school yard after the ride. Helmet required.

We’ll meet and visit selected gardens that feature water harvesting, food production, backyard chickens and more!  Meet at Culver City Hall at 12:30 to bike to Mar Vista. At 1:30 we will present the kick-off to our grassUProots campaign at the Home of the Blades Family, 11375 Matteson Ave. (Map 1-K of garden tour homes). Come hear about garden transformation from folks who have jumped in with their own muddy boots!
