Following CIEDM Meetup on 2011 National Honey Bee ( Awareness) Day held on August 20, we schedule to have another meetup to celebrate the World Kitchen Garden Day on Sunday August 28. While KGI sponors & calls for an world-wide celebration annually for this special day, we are supporting KGI call with this local meetup as we did in 2010. The CIEDM event planned for a small group of guests will be held at Arcadia EcoHome, a green building with a Victory Garden, and the objective is raise public awareness of & action to engage home farming that supplies healthy & sustainable food for human beings. Simialr to our 2010 Meetup, Dr. Edward Huang ??? a Kitchen Gardener, will lead a conversation on the subject & provide a tour of the garden which is also a Certified Wildlife Habitat & an Ocean Friednly Garden. In addition, we'll promote home gardens as pollinator friednly gardens that supply foods for other beings as well by incorportating & integrating our home gardens as a part of ecosystem.
