Time Banker, Katie Bachler invites you to pitch in on project #219 - Do Some Eco-Landscaping With the Watts House Project
Saturday, May 2nd from 10AM-2PM at 1758 E 107th St, Los Angeles, 90002
The Watts House Project does great work beautifying the historic area in Watts. Big Sunday volunteers will join forces with artist Edgar Arceneaux to do “eco-landscaping,” water management and rebuilding in the shadow of the landmark Watts Tower. While we work and repair this sorely neglected block, we’ll also be throwing a party with a team of filmmakers, musicians, landscapers and architects. Be prepared to dig, plant, pave and party!
