Saving the World, One Garden at a Time



Reporter and LA Activist Sahra Sulaiman provides a personal account of a visit to an LA Green Grounds Dig-In. She interviews volunteer Craig Dietrich and Dig-In host Judy about the groups’s structure and the struggles and rewards that come with organizing:

The tools are also their own. The mulch and compost brought to the dig-in site are free from the city, but require that one of the organizers make the effort to transport it to the site. The only thing the homeowner is responsible for is sourcing any fruit trees that they would like to see planted and inviting their neighbors to join in the dig. In short, the organizers have invested a lot of themselves in making their vision a reality in the hopes that those entrusted with new gardens will carry that vision forward.
