Hollywood Residents: Get Thee To the Garden!
If you're all dressed and ready to go, but just need a destination where you can really get your hands dirty, consider lending said hands to the Fountain Community Garden Work Day happening until noon today at 5620 Fountain Ave. Council President Eric Garcetti will be there to help in building Hollywood's newest community garden, but the garden needs you to help build planter beds, plant a fruit trees, and much more. Refreshments will be provided. This event is held in partnership with LA Works, Home Depot, LA Conservation Corps, and LA Garden Council.

Art on Two Wheels
The East Hollywood Art Cycle is going to shut down Heliotrope at Melrose today from 2-10 p.m. as artists take over the street to show their work. Attendees can check out the on-site silk-screening booth, a short walking tour of the area running on the hour from 3-8, see the Salsarologo dancers do their moves, hear the curious music of Telematique, eat at local restaurants, and in the evening enjoy live music at area galleries. And at 8 pm Killsonic is due to march through the streets with their unorthodox collection of musical instruments. They also have several area bike rides aimed at helping you get to know the neighborhood every hour between 2-5.
