Join us at the Arboretum for this workshop! From window sills and balconies to side yards or community plots, learn how to create a home garden to meet your needs. Elliott Kuhn, owner and cultivator of Cottonwood Urban Farm, will walk you through the basics of climate and seasons, seed starting, companion planting, fertilizing, and container necessities. Handouts and giveaways will accompany the presentation.


About the instructor:
In the winter of 2012, educator and LA native Elliott Kuhn began converting a dusty, vacant plot in Panorama City into a highly productive urban farm. Nestled in the basin of the Tujunga Wash, Cottonwood Urban Farm is dedicated to the cross section of food, community, and education.

CUF provides a resource to locally grown food and sustainability through reconnecting  individuals with the process of agriculture. With a deep connection to community, education, and ecology, CUF places social responsibility first and works with several non-profits in the Los Angeles area to facilitate the transformational  process of taking food from seed to the table.
