Spring Street Community Gardens

On a sunny Sunday morning I went to meet the community gardeners and Snoop the dog of Spring Street. These gardens were the first of their kind in Downtown LA and really are in the heart of the city.

The gardeners gave me a tour and explained how members of the community have their own plots and some are for the public; they even have some homeless gardeners!

The gardens are situation at the side of a multistory car park and they really are an inspirational example of how under used, weedy land can become a gardeners haven!

Thanks guys for having me, sharing your garden with me and YES to twinning with Nottingham… As promised I will see if there’s a Spring Street in my city and build a garden inspired by yours!
