On this episode of EcoJustice Radio, we visit with the members of an inspiring community garden and culture-space called The BirdHouse, in Hollywood, CA.
Learn how our “wasted resources” have direct social, economic and environmental impacts and how local groups are creating local solutions. This episode’s guests are tackling the environmental issues of soil health and wasted organics, all the while building community roots and social equity through local composting and thriving urban farms.

Gardens and farms, green roofs and landscaped buildings are becoming more a part of the urban landscape in Japan.
