  1. Re: Monrovia's Community Gardens

    Dear Sir or Madam,
    It is wonderful that you are starting to prepare Monrovia citizens for subsistence farming at a city collective, since doing the same thing on their personal property would be so inconsiderate.

    This idea has worked so well for the Chinese that they eat bats and insects.

    What a progressive view y'all have.

    1. what a very racist and uneducated view you have ma'am

  2. The collective happens to be on church property so don't get so twisted mr ceo. BTW, not all citizens of monrovia have personal property. Have you ever heard of apartments??? Your ignorance is showing.

    1. The previous comment is so incredibly hateful,not only does planting teach kids about preserving the earth but it allows them to feel like they are doing something special.I am sure schelly doesn't believe in global warming or education or keeping negative comments that don't concern him to himself. Let's spread love not hate. Bless you for doing something positive.

  3. If you don't want to participate in the community garden, then don't. It's not mandatory and many people find it fun and meaningful.
