Our booth offered information on Farm to School, volunteer opportunities and gave out over 500 lbs of organic fruit, vegetables and herbs from our Farm Lab Gardens to the El Monte community! Saturday and Sunday EUG staff taught workshops on CA native wildflower seed bombs! These creative clay creations support native bee, butterfly and other essential pollinators here in California, one of the most biodiverse states!
