Going to the LWV California Convention?

LWVC 2015 State Convention

Getting there:

Rather than driving, consider alternatives:

(1) Take the Coaster downtown to the Santa Fe Depot (round trip cost: $5.50 for seniors for 3 zones). You can walk to the Westin from there (about 5 blocks) or take the Orange line trolley, getting off at Civic Center which is about 2 short blocks to the Westin. Your best bet is to get a Day Pass, which costs $12 and provides combined coverage for the Coaster and Trolley.

If you do plan to drive, be aware that parking at the hotel or in Horton Plaza will be expensive ($30 per day). Cheaper parking is available at the corner of 1st and G Streets (go up the elevator at Nordstrom's and walk to the end of the mall) and at 2nd and J Streets. The walk is 4 blocks.

We look forward to seeing you there!

An Enlightening Tour of Home Town Farms

Home Town Farm Nearly 30 of our members recently met for a look at a new way of farming.

Home Town Farms has greenhouses covering 165,000 sq. ft. The farm harvests 300,000 - 400,000 pounds of produce per acre whereas traditional farms harvest 20,000 - 40,000 pounds of produce per acre.

Home Town Farms is USDA certified which means no insecticides are used; they use natural methods to control pests. Plants are grown vertically; they use 80% less water than conventional farms.

Organic produce includes strawberries; hybrid and heirloom tomatoes; cucumbers; squash and zucchini.

Their mission is to provide organic produce directly to the local community at affordable prices. We were surely impressed and are eager to spread the word. Learn more Click the Flickr icon on the sidebar to see more photos of the visit.
