Many drivers catch a glimpse of the Solano Community Garden as they speed northbound on the Arroyo Seco Parkway, where a hillside lot off the Solano Avenue exit has been transformed into a lush urban farm accented with folksy artwork and shady spots to rest under the trees. On Saturday, the garden will be open to the public for an Earth Day Celebration & Fundraiser, complete with live music, garden tours and other events.
Another Earth Day related event will be held in Silver Lake, where a conference will focus on ways residents can put clean energy to use. If you got energetic kids, perhaps a performance of “The Breakfast Show” – yes, cereal is provided – will help keep them busy. Also this weekend, the Kristi Engle Gallery in Highland Park opens a new show, a guided bike ride will roll through Elysian Park and there will be an Easter Afternoon Soundbath in Echo Park. More events and things to do in Save the Date.
