We network with other groups such as Heal the Bay, 5 Gyres, the City of Los Angeles and Kehillat Israel to offer information and activities about protecting our environment.
We organize and promote volunteer projects that individuals of all ages can participate in. Recent activities have included a food collection for Westside Food Bank and serving dinner to homeless clients of Turning Point Transitional Housing.
During the months of April and May, Palisades Cares will network with others to provide information about eating sustainably grown local food. Listen to chefs, farmers and authors; visit the PP farmers market and learn how to cook with the produce; eat "farm to table" food at local schools and restaurants, go to an edible gardening workshop, plant your own veggies. It's all about eating delicious food that's good for you! The main sponsor is the Pacific Palisades Women's Club. Thanks also to Kehillat Israel and Gelson's Markets.
We appreciate the recent donation from the Pacific Palisades Women's Club in support of a "little free library" in Pacific Palisades.
It's tomato-planting time again! Grow Native Nursery in Westwood hosts Tomatomania on April 5 and 6. Start growing your own today!
