Free Rain Barrels Are Back for the City of Los Angeles
Last fall, Keep Los Angeles Beautiful partnered with Coca-Cola to provide 1,000 free rain barrels and rain barrel conversion kits to Los Angeles residents. The only prerequisite was attendance of a rain harvesting workshop, which the program sold out instantly.
If you've been waiting for the program to replenish its supplies, good news: the free barrels are back, with new workshop dates on the calendar. Keep Los Angeles Beautiful has secured another round of 55-gallon syrup barrels and rain barrel conversion kits from Coca-Cola to repurpose and distribute for residential use.
To get in line for one, you must preregister for a distribution event online. The first is scheduled for March 7 at Friendship Auditorium in Griffith Park. Additional events will be announced for March 14, March 28, and April.
The events are free to all preregistered attendees who can prove residency by showing a copy of their most recent LADWP bill or a California ID reflecting a City of LA address. Qualified residents will receive a 30-minute orientation on how to properly install and maintain their rain barrels.
Only one barrel will be provided per household, so if you're in need of more, LADWP is continuing its offer of a $100 per barrel rebate (through SoCal Water$mart) if you buy your own. The rebate is limited to four barrels per household.
After the screening, KCET Cinema Series host Pete Hammond conversed with director Fernando Ferreira Meirelles (City of Gold), and writer Anthony McCarten.
All around the United States is a 100-mile border zone where one can be searched and one's things seized. Policies way beyond what the constitution allows is regularly implemented. Artists drew on select sites. Here's what they realized.
Created by policymakers in the 1940s, the border zone extends 100 miles inland from the nation’s land and sea boundaries and houses nearly two-thirds of the U.S. population. It's also where the 4th amendment rights of the people have been subverted.
We have forgotten how to be medicine to the land, and to ourselves. The members of Syuxtun Collective are revisiting lost indigenous wisdom of learning and listening, of harvesting and preparing plant medicine in participation with nature.
