I noticed a newly planted avocado tree seedling in the grassy front yard of the apartment building next door. I am guessing this is the professional work of a neighbor moonlighting as a guerrilla gardener. Seeing this newly planted tree reminded me that I should contribute something as well in the name of community. Thanks to the worms living happy and productive lives on my balcony in a Worm Factory 360, I can supply community compost.
The City of Los Angeles is encouraging the community to compost by offering free composting workshops and reduced cost compost bins. Check with your local government representatives for similar offerings.
Most importantly, did you know if you live in the appropriate climate you can grow an avocado tree at home from the leftover seed?
