Ernestine Allen is a 32-year resident of the city of Ontario who has seen many changes over the years on her mostly palm-tree-lined street, Plaza Serena. But one thing has stayed constant: everyone communicates and looks out for one another.

In May, Ernestine noticed the diadora pine tree located in her front yard beginning to lean as winds battered the Ontario area. She was concerned parts of the tree would fall and damage adjacent homes or neighbors walking by her home.

Join us Saturday April 28th at 9:00 AM as we continue this year’s Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) projects. This time we’ll focus on the team effort that goes into protecting organic resources.

Gardening for Healthier Communities combines topical conversations, active working sessions, and farming education to highlight the importance and need for fresh organic produce in highly populated urban areas. The Lampkin Foundation has partnered with Huerta Del Valle, a non-profit, to host “A Day of Farming”. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, this is the event for you!

Huerta Del Valle’s goal is to provide all 160,000 people residing in the city of Ontario with accessible organic food. They also endeavor to foster, cultivate, and build stronger relationships within the region.

Reflections on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Reflections on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

By admin in D'Andre D. Lampkin Foundation, Foundation Events on April 4, 2018

Fifty years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, his message is still just as significant. It is my hope his legacy last another 50 years and beyond.

He taught us that there is validity in protest and that you can change the country through meaningful, constructive civil engagement. He even noted that everyone has the potential to be great through service.

Let’s also not forget King was stressed about the progress being made in the United States. There were some gains but there was also loss – including death.

Dr. King was perhaps one of the greatest human beings to ever grace this earth. Chief among the characteristics of being a human being is that he was human – not perfect, but certainly spiritually aware of our nature and the need to improve how we treat each other.
