Pumpkin Pie in July

July 28, 2010

Propped-up Possert Pumpkins at Milagro Allegro Community Garden on Avenue 56 in Highland Park

With weather so unseasonably cool lately, a freshly-baked pumpkin pie with Fosselman’s ice cream sounds pretty good right now. But where to get fresh pumpkins in July? You might be in luck this Saturday, July 31 at 6pm when Milagro Allegro Community Garden hosts its first ever “Garden Swap.”

The public is welcomed to bring their own fruits, vegetables, seeds, compost, plants, planters, tools, books, or other organic garden-related items to exchange with like-minded individuals at the Farmlab-award-winning Milagro Allegro Community Garden.

This could be really good. Have raw almonds? Trade them for raw coffee beans! Have a herd of goats with too much raw goat milk? Trade it for growlers of Eagle Rock Brew! Want to feed your bird some fresh sunflower seeds? Swap some fruit from your avocado tree for a fresh sunflower!

The event is absolutely free. As an added bonus Master Gardener, Milli Macen-Moore will be on hand to answer your most obscure gardening questions. RSVP by July 30th to

If that wasn’t enough permaculture excitement this weekend, there is also the 5th Annual Public Fruit Jam put on by Fallen Fruit at LACMA. The concept is simple: Bring your own home-grown or found fruit, collaborate with others and make jam to take home. The public performance takes place at Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Sunday, August 1st from Noon to 3pm. Free.

    Great post! All of my fruit trees are too young to be bearing fruit yet. Maybe I should check the Fallen Fruit website and bringing some of that to share!
