Life Linked to Land: Growing Local by Planting Native

presented by CURRENT:LA

The Theodore Payne Foundation’s Local Source Initiative aims to link Angelenos to the land on which they live by providing native plants, ethically and legally sourced from local populations, in order to help protect biodiversity, encourage the use of locally adapted garden plants, and raise awareness about the preservation of local habitats. Led by Genevieve Arnold of the Theodore Payne Foundation and presented in collaboration with CURRENT artist Kerry Tribe.
