Long Beach Wrigley Garden
Wrigley is Going Green, a grass roots neighborhood environmental organization devoted to saving and planting trees in Long Beach, was awarded a Neighborhood Partners Program grant to plant 60 trees in the area immediately surrounding the Wrigley Garden and create a mural by our very own local artist, Lisa Wibroe, to go in the thriving community garden.
Fresh, delicious hand-crafted seasonal jams, preserves, pickles, relishes, sauces and more created by the Wrigley Garden are now available at several locations. Made in small batches from local ingredients, products currently include strawberry jelly, lemon curd, orange-ginger marmalade, rosemary-lemon butter, honey wine jelly and strawberry rhubarb jam and will change with the seasons.
Right now is a perfect time is get growing in sunny Long Beach. Join the Wrigley Garden for free fruit trees and advice on growing local fruits and vegetables this Sunday, January 17.
