Gardens of Gratitude kickoff event

SM Public Library – 601 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, 90401

Time: 6:30pm-8:30pm

Last year, Gardens of Gratitude connected volunteers with people who wanted to start gardens on their property.  It was a huge success and created lots of new gardens in the neighborhood.  They’re doing it again this year.

Event Description: It’s happening. Another Westside Permie Gathering at the SM library. Besides getting the chance to reconnect with old friends and have the chance to make new ones, we’re going to begin the planning of our next Gardens of Gratitude event. This year is going to be even bigger and better than last year.

Make your way down to the Santa Monica Main Library’s Multi-purpose Room on Monday February 1st, 2010 at 6:30pm-8:30pm. Let’s make this gathering one of our best ones yet, bring lots of food for potluck for all to share.
