Home June Community Service – Urban Farm Gardening

HUAC LAC hosts a variety of events throughout the year ranging from alumni happy hours to freshman send off, to benefits featuring notable graduates, and much, much more! The goal is to conduct local programming that not only engages alumni of all degrees and generations through a range of appealing opportunities, but also supports Howard University and its students through fundraising and scholarship driven efforts.

If you are a local alumni or business owner that would like to partner with our club to host a unique event, or are interested in joining the Event Committee to help create, plan, and staff functions in the Los Angeles area, please contact us at LABisonEvents@gmail.com.

June Community Service – Urban Farm Gardening

June 30 @ 2:00 am - 5:00 am

For our June Community Service event, we will assist Community Services Unlimited (CSU, Inc.) with the gardening of their urban farm, which provides healthy food to underserved communities. You must RSVP to attend.

*Dress for garden work, bring water, snacks, sunblock, and a hat if sensitive to the sun.

“The Growing Healthy program at CSU, Inc. engages youth in urban farming and food based learning as a tool to help them adopt a healthier lifestyle and develop an awareness and political consciousness to the food access and environmental justice issues impacting their communities. The program currently operates at two sites: Normandie Avenue Elementary School and the Expo Center, and the program has a history at John Muir Middle School. We work youth and adults of all ages, from pre-school to seniors. We offer nutrition and gardening education and engage the youth in community research and projects aimed at understanding the food environment and improving access to healthy local food at their schools and in their community.”
