Cal Flame donates to Weingart Center garden project
Casual Living Staff -- Casual Living, July 18, 2010
Cal Flame, the high-end barbecue manufacturer from the Cal Spas family, was the principal donor for the Weingart Center Association's community garden, built for the homeless in the Skid Row district of Los Angeles.
The community garden opened on July 8 with a morning ceremony, featuring Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and Congresswoman Lucille Roybal-Allard as guest speakers.
The garden was designed by Eva Knoppel of Garden of Eva Landscape Design Group.
The Weingart Center Association sought to provide a peaceful sanctuary in Skid Row to provide homeless people the healing power of nature to assist them in transforming their lives. The Cal Flame donation will be a key component in the success of this garden project.
The Skid Row community garden is an AmeriCorps Week 2010 project, sponsored by the Weingart Center Association in partnership with Los Angeles Christian Health Centers, Los Angeles Mission, Midnight Mission, Union Rescue Mission
and Volunteers of America.
