An Evening w/ Kazi Pitelka –  The L.A. Kitchen Garden: Common Questions and Misconceptions
Kazi Pitelka once described herself as joyfully obsessed with growing food in the back yard. That joy has now moved firmly into both her front yard and other people’s yards.  Her gardening, cooking, and preserving have been featured in the Los Angeles Times and Pasadena Star News, and on Evan Kleiman’s “Good Food” on KCRW. She gives lectures, leads garden tours and teaches adults and children, including annual visits for Pasadena Waldorf School’s third grade farming curriculum. Kazi has been growing fruit and vegetables in southern California for over 30 years; her last orchard produced 120 different kinds of fruit. Her search for successful varieties and methods for southern California is energized by the satisfaction of watching food grow; the pleasure of combining colors, textures, and flavors in the kitchen; and the enjoyment of amazing tastes from food that is vibrantly fresh from the garden.
In this presentation  “Common Questions and Misconceptions” Kazi will focus on 3 garden topics that surface most frequently in conversations about growing food: Care of the Soil,  Hybrid and Heirloom, and Fruit Trees.

Los Angeles, CA – National Plug In Day

Los Angeles, CA – National Plug In Day


Sun, Sep 23, 2012
11:00 AM – 3:00 PM

Los Angeles, CA – National Plug In Day


Plug In Day 2011 - Los Angeles

Our goal with the Los Angeles Plug In Day is to give as many test drives as possible. We believe that once someone experiences the superior driving characteristics of a plug-in car, they will be more likely to acquire one themselves.

We will have vehicles representing the full line up of plug-in vehicles available for purchase. From Nissan LEAFs to Tesla Roadsters, from Chevy Volts to the Toyota Prius and everything in between.

If you have ever wondered what it’s like to drive on electricity instead of oil, this is your chance.


LEAF-driver California Representative Janice Hahn will deliver a proclamation to Plug In America, and, one or more of the following pure-electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles are confirmed for test-drives and rides: Nissan LEAF, Tesla Roadster, Chevy Volt, Coda, Mitsubishi iMiEV, Zero and Vectrix Motorcycles, BMW ActiveE, Plug-In Prius, Toyota RAV4 EV, Volkswagen e-Gulf, Fisker Karma, Ford Ranger EV. A Tesla Model S will be on display.

A limited number of Automobile Driving Museum cars will also be available for rides. A 1914-1916 Milburn electric car, 1947 Chrysler Windsor and 1957 427 Chevrolet Project X will be among museum vehicles on display.
