4 Highlights from Earth Day Soiree

We’re so proud to share that our first ever Earth Day Soiree was a huge success! We were thrilled to be joined by our dedicated supporters who share our vision for a greener LA. Here are some of our favorite highlights:

Our Lead Certified Arborist, Linda Eremita, was our resident Dr. Tree–taking people’s tree questions and handing out “prescriptions” for care!

We were joined by many of our friends, including legendary guerrilla gardener Ron Finley.

Sonic Installation Artist, Mileece, had an installation of an interactive garden, allowing guests to connect with plants to create “organic electronic music” generated live from the plants’ “bio-emissions.” Check it out:

Our program also featured the hard work of some local environmental youth leaders from Huntington Park.  These dedicated interns spend every Tuesday making their neighborhood more climate-resilient by planting and caring for trees, and also inspire others to take ownership of their community.
