Squirt! Bike Race & Scavenger Hunt
2 Year LA Guerilla Gardening Anniversary Party
DATE: June 20, 2010
TIME: 1PM (Race starts 2PM SHARP)
LOCATION: Hollywood to Downtown
REGISTRATION & START: Please meet at the Universal City Metro Parking Lot — “Kiss and Ride” lot closest to the 101 Freeway.
Its been two years since LAGG started as a group of friends planting on a forgotten corner of LA. Last month we planted 7 new gardens along the Metro Red Line and now we’d like your help to water them. But we wouldn’t be LAGG if we didn’t try to make it fun too!
We invite you to bring your bike or your camera and help us race to water our gardens. Come down to the finish line and celebrate 2 years of guerrilla gardening in LA with drink specials and food downtown after the race.
PRIZES FOR BIKE and PEDESTRIAN DIVISIONS!
Specific details added soon.
