Six months after its inception at the North end of the Los Angeles State Historic Park, the Farmlab Agbin Garden has gone mobile. In doing so we are experimenting with one of the key functions of the garden: its ability to maintain a viable community of gardeners while moving from one location to another.
Though the move is a short one, merely to the other side of Baker St. adjacent to the Farmlab building, it allows the F.L.A.G. team to experience the garden in a very different environment. More limited sun exposure, access to rainwater from roofs, daily foot traffic from garment workers, and heavier car traffic are some of the challenges and opportunities the new site provides.
Some of the existing gardeners have reduced the size of their garden from three bins to one, making room for new volunteers to join to project.
