I'm in Silverlake :)
You might try making a flyer asking to transform someones front yard into a beautiful vegetable garden! I bet there are people out there who would like to host a garden, maybe for a couple of vegetables. I'm not sure if gardens are considered lawns- anyone know? but as of today there is no lawn watering except twice a week in LA.

Thanks Taylor! I will look for the garden in Solano Cnyn. And I am reaching out on FB for people that might want to host..

Wow Fiver! I was under the impression the water laws start in June. Thanks for the heads up. I will double check that one today.

Any other garden ideas are most welcome! Keep 'em coming!

Here's a very helpful article explaining the new rules from the LA Times. They start June 1, and apply only to automatic lawn sprinklers.

"Hand watering using garden hoses fitted with shut-off nozzle devices is allowed any day but not between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. "

Jenelle -
maybe Underwood? http://www.underwoodfamilyfarms.com/index.html
Or Greg Berry?
http://www.localharvest.org/farms/M14502 (LocalHarvest is a great way to search for more) Both are in Moorpark (Ventura Co)

Or there's growcology in Riverside: http://growcology.com/

thanks for the tips!

Hey Janelle--

I'd suggest EarthWorks Farm in Whittier or the Tierra Miguel Foundation. I've volunteer at EarthWorks before and it's a great place.

Wow, Cornelia, thanks for the link! What a great program! Sadly I doubt I'm eligible as none of my property drains to the street, but I'm spreading the word as far as I can!
