Picture 10

(US)Broccoli City executed its multi-city environmental celebration in Washington, DC on Saturday, April 19, 2014 and Los Angeles, CA on Saturday, May 3, 2014 — reaching well over 10,000 multicultural youth and a list of celebrities that included Selena Gomez, Karrueche Tran, and Cody Simpson, just to name a few.

Festival goers were treated to a pop up market featuring an array of diverse vendors, complementary group yoga and fitness sessions, and live art instillations. In addition, elected officials, community activists, and environmental advocates delivered arousing speeches which underscored wellness strategies — all set to the backdrop of live performances from nationally recognized musical acts such as JoJo, Cam’ron, Just Blaze, Dizzy Wright, Vashtie, BJ the Chicago Kid, and more.

42 years ago, Wattstax festival brought 112,000 African Americans to the LA Coliseum

Share




wtxx-25-great-rock-movies-20111107-008

The story starts in Watts — ten miles South from the Los Angeles Coliseum — seven years before festival took place.

34 people died during the Watts Riots. Thousands more injured. $40 million in damage. But injuries weren’t just physical: images of the riots travelled far and wide and gave Watts and its nearby areas a reputation some say it still hasn’t lived down.

At the time, Al Bell worked for Stax Records, the Memphis based soul label. He’d eventually become president.

“The idea came from Forrest Hamilton who ran the West Coast office for Stax. To come here and put on a small concert to help draw attention to, and to raise funds for the Watts Summer Festival,” said Bell. “To create, motivate, and instill a sense of pride in the citizens of the Watts community.” [Read more...]

Sustainability with a Youthful Smile

Share




url-3

It’s no secret that the essence of Broccoli City derives from the energy of youth. So when we began to build out an idea that became known as the Smile Project – a premier, family friendly street carnival–it was a foregone conclusion that we’d enlist the partnership of some of DC’s remarkable young students. Enter the sustainability patrols: a program employed by the District Department of Environment, consisting of DC Public School students who are selected each year to ensure the sustainability of their schools. Now, I’ve been introduced to some super dope educational concepts over the years, but this program takes it to another level! Considering I was a safety patrol in my day; an honor I held at the highest regard, this new version of what that position entails reflects the times in which we now live adequately. [Read more...]

Where: Surfas in Culver City (8777 W Washington Blvd)

What: A chance for urban farmers, backyard growers and community gardeners throughout Los Angeles to showcase the best produce from their summer gardens!

Edible Oddity: anything from oversize pumpkins to unusual crop varieties are fair game.
Best-in-show: A subjective evaluation by the judges of the most “impressive” vegetable submission.
A panel of three urban farming experts – Kevin West, author of Saving the Season; Brandon McEachern of Broccoli City; and Renee Gunther of Daily Organics – will then select the winners for each category and award prizes.

Following the state fair portion of the event, Kevin West will conduct a cooking demonstration, where he will prepare a homemade tomato sauce using tomatoes from the event.
