Got a yard but not a green thumb?

Then consider sharing your green space with a land-poor gardener. The L.A. Community Garden Council has launched a garden-sharing program, one of several mentioned in a recent LA Times story, in Eagle Rock, Mt. Washington and other nearby neighborhoods, said council president and Eagle Rock resident Mary Tokita. Homeowners, churches and other property owners with a suitable spot (the garden patch needs at least six to eight hours a day of sunlight) can visit GrowFriend.org to view a list of people interested in growing vegetables and other edible plants.

The garden council has also teamed up with the Los Angeles Conservation Corps to have LACC youths build raised garden beds on participating properties.
