A few weekends back LBFC had a GROW IT. SHARE IT. EAT IT Farm tour. We spent the morning farming (okay we didn't really farm but we saw people farming) in the middle of the city.
We had a blast I learned that tomatoes don't go on trees (hey persimmons look just like tomatoes from a distance). Im a fitness trainer not a botanist:)
We went to 3 different farmers markets/community gardens. All those that came had a blast and if you didn't make it you missed out for sure.
Here are a few pictures of our fabulous day!!

We went to the
- Growing Experience located at 750 Via Carmelitos Long Beach, 90805 this was an Awesome Community Garden and farmers market its a must...they had everything from fish to chickens to hydroponic plants and apple orchards.
- Farm Lot 59 located 2714 California Ave Long Beach, 90755. they had a stand watermelons, celery, and a host of other fruits and veggies. It felt like we were in another place.
- Zaferian Junction Garden Tour on 10th and Grand Ave wehre people by a plot of land plant there fruits and vegetables they take care of their mini farm and harvest and eat off it. It was Awesome... We all learned so much.
