From June 2010

Thank you for your support of the Micheltorena School / Community Garden

Thank you so much for flexing your voting muscles in support of the recent Nature’s Path community garden grant challenge; we rocketed up the ranks of proposals swiftly, and in the end garnered 1100 votes (!) but missed securing a position in the top 5 qualifying positions by 66 votes.

HOWEVER, our team views this as not a defeat, but just the beginning in a very wonderful process, that of creating a garden for Micheltorena Street Elementary and the community of Silverlake.  What this challenge did was galvanize our effort, make our plans known to the community, and allowed YOU to communicate your enthusiasm for this project.  Thank you all so much.

To celebrate the official birth of this project, jumpstart the fundraising process, and to allow us to all come together as garden supporters, we cordially invite you to join us at Gobi Restaurant, located at 2827 West Sunset Boulevard (cross street: Parkman) on Thursday June 24 from 6pm to 11pm, for a Micheltorena School / Community Garden fundraiser.  Gobi will donate 20% of the proceeds from the evening’s food sales to our garden cause.  Visit for more information about the restaurant.
