Event Description

On Saturday April 6th Community Services Unlimited and numerous partners and sponsors will hold the 5th annual Earth Day South LA Festival, an educational, fun and safe event for the whole family. 

Join us as we celebrate our collective vision for a more vibrant and earth-friendly South Los Angeles with this year's theme, GROWING OUR OWN, visible throughout the event. Participate in service projects, all day activities for kids, cooking demos and workshops including gardening with natives, recycled art, and yoga. This growing grassroots movement demonstrates what people can do with limited resources and endless commitment once we organize with each other resourcefully to spark the power shift. Together we envision an annual Earth Day event where community residents come together in a safe environment to have fun, celebrate our foods and cultures, learn about and participate in sustainable practices, and connect with each other and organizations working to make positive change in our neighborhood.
