We network with other organizations such as the UCCE Master Gardeners, California Certified Farmers' Markets, Malibu Compost, local restaurants and individuals to encourage residents to eat locally grown organic food. It's tasty and good for you and your family. If you can, grow it. If you can't support our local farmers.
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.
During the month of April, Palisades Cares will network with other organizations and individuals 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, plant your own veggies. It's all about eating delicious food that's good for you!
