A Fundraiser for “Topanga Gold”
$10 Suggested Donation
Topanga Earth Day at Rosewood has been postponed due to delays in permitting. A date, tentative at this time, has been suggested for early July. Stay tuned for details.
This event was planned as a fundraiser to support the Community Compost Hub being installed at the Topanga Community Center on May 4, at 1 p.m. The public is invited to help with the build and attend a composting basics workshop led by Michael Martinez of LA Compost.
The Messenger Mountain News will continue to accept donations at the May 4 event and will accept checks made payable to Messenger Mountain News (mail to: P.O. Box 1101, Topanga, CA 90290) to support the Community Compost Hub.
