Silverlake Farms is an urban oasis in the trendy neighborhood of Silverlake.  The “Farm” offers workshops and classes on urban farming and vegetable gardening, cooking classes (so you know what to do with those awesome veggies that you raise) and a CSA (community supported agriculture) program for those of us too lazy to farm but willing to support other organic and local farmers.  Their Urban Farming workshop on May 22 is free – as a participant you help out a local farm, connect with your community and pick up valuable tips on cultivating your own patch of shangri la.
