Farmlab is committed to the preservation and perpetuity of living things.

Agbins on Skid Row brings a communal garden to the homeless community. Farmlab has produced a fleet of thirty bins seeded with vegetables and flowers. Several Skid Row hosts have been selected to foster and care for a bin during the summer months. This trial project aims to bring the joy of growing food to displaced people. Modeled on community gardens, our hope is that these agbins become like a single garden, in several locations, within this defined community.

Farmlab wishes to offer many thanks, in advance and in no particular order, the following participating organizations:

  • The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens -- for donating 2,000 oranges;

  • Urban Farming -- for donating seeds;

  • Each of the eight Skid Row agencies (see map for names) directly involved in the project -- for everything.

  • Ramon Gonzales

  • The Learning Garden, Venice High School

  • Cocoxochtl Flower Farm NHHS

  • LAUSD Nutrition Network
