Family Fun Day Event
Playful Planet, Harmony House Yoga and Honeymoon Cafe
join together to support an amazing project
that gives grade school kids in New Orleans, whoare still feeling the
unfortunate effects of Hurricane Katrina,a Community Garden project called The Garden of Eatin’.
The children have the opportunity to learn about the importance of healthy foods and a healthy environment,
to prepare the soil and plant seeds, to nurture growing fruits and vegetables throughout the year,
and then harvest their crops!
Some of these kids have never left the inner city district of the Lower Ninth Ward,
but the Garden of Eatin’ brings them outto the countrywhere theylearn more
about the multitude of benefits of growing food, eatinghealthily,and being in nature.
Aid Still Required (ASR) based in nearby Santa Monica, CA refocuses
the spotlight on people who have been left behind after natural disasters.
ASR is proud to collaborate with community partner New Orleans’ nonprofit Common Ground Relief
on behalf of the children and to support wetlands restoration.
The effects of Katrina have been out of the news for years, but they are very real on the ground.
Help us support this effort by coming out on July 30th
3:00-6:00 pm at Harmony House Yoga and Honeymoon Cafe
911 Price Street in Pismo Beach
Suggested Donation: $10/adult $5/child
no one turned away for lack of funds!
