Planet Earth Observatory tackles climate change through community science and art initiatives in urban food gardens around Metropolitan Los Angeles. We partner with artist and scientists, providing opportunities to deeply observe and engage with nature. We make room to tell our stories, share recipes, create community and consider complex subjects, including the climate crisis and food equity.
Saturday, August 12th 10 am - 12 noon, Huntington Library. Bumble Bee workshop with Dr. Leif Richardson, Bumble Bee Atlas. This workshop is full; No more tickets available.
We team up with artists and scientists to deeply observe nature. But we don't just look; we listen, smell, touch and taste to better understand the world around us.
We grow climate-friendly heritage crops that are tasty, nutritious AND good for the soil. We also tend native plants that support pollinators and other critters so essential to a healthy garden ecosystem.
Gardens nourish us with healthy food. They also provide a place for us to enjoy nature, to tell our stories, to create art and have fun. Gardens are places to heal ourselves and grow community. We believe that without community there can be no health.
Help us promote resilient food garden and farm ecosystems around Metro Los Angeles.
