Prior to the 1940s, there were many Black and Latino clubs and clicks, but very few outright gangs. This was also true of the white population of Los Angeles. However, this changed in the 1940s. In the 1940s, the Black population doubled as people came to work building ships and weapons for the military during World War II. At the time, Blacks and Latinos were restricted in where they could live. Blacks had to live along Central Ave. and Latinos lived mostly in East LA. As the population increased, some whites feared that Blacks and Latinos would start living outside of these restricted areas. Huntington Park, Bell, South Gate, Inglewood, Compton, Gardena, and West LA all had organized white gangs that would seek out Blacks and Latinos and harass them or beat them up. The largest of these gangs were the Spook Hunters. “Spook” is a derogatory term used toward Black people. During the 1940s, the Ku Klux Klan also emerged in LA. The first Black and Latino gangs were in response to these white gangs. The gangs acted as protection for Black and Latino neighborhoods. Incidents such as the Zoot Suit Riots, in which white marines attacked Latino zoot suiters, led to a higher degree of organization in the gangs of both Blacks and Latinos.

Section 62.169 (b) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code
Occupants Residential Parkway Landscaping
Native Plant Program (RPLNPP) in the city of Los Angeles
Considering that a curbside is an underutilized strip of land between the sidewalk and the street, the regulations were a point of contention in lower-income neighborhoods, which often lack green space and access to fresh, healthy foods.
However, urban farmers have reason to cheer. The L.A. City Council has voted to allow Angelenos to plant fruits and vegetables in their parkways – that strip of city-owned land between the sidewalk and the street – without a permit. Fruit trees, however, will still require a permit.
LA City Council approves curbside planting of fruits and vegetables L.A. New City Ordinance: 183474, Sec .62.169. (b): In accordance with Section 62.169 (b) of the Los Angeles Municipal Code, “No permit is required by the owner of property fronting the parkway portion of the street in an area zoned for residential use in order for the owner to remove existing shrubs and plants and replace the shrubs and plants with landscaping, including edible plant materials…”
owners or occupants of residentially zoned properties may install shrub and ground cover plant materials within parkways fronting their properties without the need to obtain a permit, while still being held responsible for maintenance.

‘No Bugs, More Food?’ Parent Finds GMO Propaganda In Common Core Science Book
We are in a food emergency. Speculation and diversion of food to biofuel has contributed to an uncontrolled price rise, adding more to the billion already denied their right to food. Industrial agriculture is pushing species to extinction through the use of toxic chemicals that kill our bees and butterflies, our earthworms and soil organisms that create soil fertility. Plant and animal varieties are disappearing as monocultures displace biodiversity. Industrial, globalized agriculture is responsible for 40 percent of greenhouse gases, which then destabilize agriculture by causing climate chaos, creating new threats to food security.
But the biggest threat we face is the control of seed and food moving out of the hands of farmers and communities and into a few corporate hands. Monopoly control of cottonseed and the introduction of genetically engineered Bt cotton has already given rise to an epidemic of farmers’ suicides in India. A quarter-million farmers have taken their lives because of debt induced by the high costs of nonrenewable seed, which spins billions of dollars of royalty for firms like Monsanto.

- When you are out and about, never leave any litter behind.
In the wild, seed dormancy is usually overcome by the seed spending time in the ground through a winter period and having its hard seed coat softened up by frost and weathering action. By doing so the seed is undergoing a natural form of “stratification” or pretreatment. This cold moist period triggers the seed’s embryo, its growth and subsequent expansion eventually break through the softened seed coat in its search for sun and nutrients.
Ecology and habitat
Seeds are the beginnings of a new plant, with the sole purpose of reproducing.They lie dormant until they receive the things they need to grow, such as adequate soil, water and sunlight. This process is called germination. All seeds are different and require different conditions to germinate and grow properly. Despite being different, most seeds have three main parts in common; the seed coat, endosperm and embryo.
Native plants provide suitable habitat for native species of butterflies, birds, pollinators, and other wildlife. They provide more variety in gardens by offering myriad alternatives to the often planted introduced species, cultivars, and invasive species. The indigenous plants have co-evolved with animals, fungi and microbes, to form a complex network of relationships. They are the foundation of their native habitats and ecosystems, or natural communities.
Such gardens often benefit from the plants being evolved and habituated to the local climate, pests and herbivores, and soil conditions, and so may require fewer to no soil amendments, irrigation, pesticides, and herbicides for a beautiful, lower maintenance, and more sustainable landscape.
For thousands of years, the native people of North America sustained life and health with plants found all around them. Getting to know this ecosystem is the first step in preserving plants that can offer beautiful benefits to our health.
For countless generations, Native Americans have used the plants around them for food and medicine. It has been reported that the various tribes on this continent used more than 1,000 species of plants for food alone. With good reason: The native plants are nutritious, rich in vitamins and minerals, and many are excellent sources of protein.
Native people weren’t just sitting around their lodges, holding their sick stomachs, nursing terrible headaches and waiting for a drug store to finally open in their neighborhoods. They needed look no farther than the surrounding prairie and woodlands for help in healing the pain, wounds and infections that are an inevitable part of being human.
The California Native Plant Society promotes the inclusion of native plants in every school garden. Native plants help students learn the vital connection between plants and higher forms of life. Plants are at the bottom of the food chain, and native plants are a primary component of healthy ecosystems. Just as edible plants are important for human health and survival, native plants are equally necessary to other forms of life. Native plants help pollinator populations survive and thrive, which in turn help pollinate edible crops.
Some ideas for incorporating native plants in school gardens:
- Pollinator Garden
- Butterfly Garden
- Bird-friendly Garden
- Hummingbird Garden
- Ethnobotanical Garden
- Habitat Garden

Fireweed: fireweed represents the promise that beauty will return after bodily sickness or environmental destruction. When woodlands are damaged from fire, or clear-cutting, it is fireweed that brings the first promise of recovery. It reminds us that nature has her healing cycle too, one initiated by this lush, fiery medicine springing up in abundance.
Identifying fireweed: The most distinctive thing about fireweed is its gorgeous pink to purple colored flowers, which grow in a spike shape in sunny pockets all over the Northwest. Flowers have four petals, and resemble the flowers of other evening primrose plant relatives. They will occasionally create secondary branches of flowers – especially when grazed by deer or other foragers.
Making Tea – Use one small handful of leaves per cup of boiled water and steep about 15 minutes. Drink up to three cups a day. The tea has a pleasant mild taste and can be mixed with other herbs for flavor.
—-Constituents–—A peculiar volatile oil – oil of Erechtites – transparent and yellow, obtained by distilling the plant with water, taste bitter and burning, odour foetid, slightly aromatic, somewhat resembling oil of Erigeron, but not soluble as that is in an equal volume of alcohol. The specific gravity of the oil is variously given as 0.927 and 0.838-0.855, and its rotation 1 to 2. According to Bielstein and Wiegand, it consists almost wholly of terpenes boiling between 175 and 310 degrees F.
—Medicinal Action and Uses—Astringent, alterative, tonic, cathartic, emetic. Much used among the aborigines of North America in various forms of eczema, muco-sanguineous diarrhoea, and haemorrhages, also for relaxed throat and sore throat, and in the United States Eclectic Dispensatory in the form of oil and as an infusion, both herb and oil being beneficial for piles and dysentery. For its anti-spasmodic properties, it has been found useful for colic, spasms and hiccough. Applied externally, it gives great relief in the pains of gout, rheumatism and sciatica.
The homoeopathic tincture is made from the whole fresh flowering plant. It is chopped, pounded to a pulp and weighed. Then two parts by weight of alcohol are taken, the pulp mixed thoroughly with one-sixth part of it and the rest of the alcohol added. After having stirred the whole, it is poured into a well-stoppered bottle and allowed to stand for eight days in a dark, cool place.
The resulting tincture has a clear, beautiful, reddish-orange colour by transmitted light; a sourish odour, resembling that of claret, a taste at first sourish, then astringent and bitter, and an acid reaction.
The young shoots were often collected in the spring by Native American people and mixed with other greens. As the plant matures the leaves become tough and somewhat bitter. The southeast Native Americans use the stems in this stage. They are peeled and eaten raw. When properly prepared soon after picking they are a good source of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A. The Dena’ina add fireweed to their dogs’ food. Fireweed is also a medicine of the Upper Inlet Dena’ina, who treat pus-filled boils or cuts by placing a piece of the raw stem on the afflicted area. This is said to draw the pus out of the cut or boil and prevents a cut with pus in it from healing over too quickly.
The root can be roasted after scraping off the outside, but often tastes bitter. To mitigate this, the root is collected before the plant flowers and the brown thread in the middle removed.
In Russia, its leaves were traditionally used as a tea, before the introduction of tea from China starting in the 17th Century, it was greatly valued and was exported in large quantites to Western Europe as Koporye Tea (Копорский чай), Russian Tea or Ivan Chai. Fireweed leaves can undergo fermentation, much like real tea. Today, koporye tea or Ivan Chai is still commonly sold and consumed in Russia, though it is not nearly as popular as it was in Pre-Soviet Russia.
Because fireweed can colonize disturbed sites, even following an old oil spill, it is often used to reestablish vegetation. It grows in (and is native to) a variety of temperate to arctic ecosystems.
The Cree of northern Alberta use it for a number of medicinal reasons including as an analgesic for the relief of toothache or headache, for oral hygiene to cleanse and disinfect the teeth, and to relieve the effects of exhaustion or fatigue.
Yarrow’s medicinal use is ancient.
The pioneers considered yarrow-tea a good remedy for “malaria”, a designation freely used in those times to describe various fevers, and when taken very hot it is a good treatment for this affliction. Potter deemed it a diaphoretic stimulant tonic used in infusion to treat colds and commencement of fever. It contains potassium and is deemed a sedative.
Nettle is a most useful and beneficial plant. Flagellation with nettles was a method of treatment formerly employed in paralysis and to produce local irritation, which must have been very effective. Cree Indians used the plant as a treatment for rheumatism by walking bare-legged ~ bared as much as the individual dared ~ through the living plants and by rubbing them on affected parts of the body, with the caution not to scratch but to let the sting wear off naturally. Strangely, the juice from its leaves will heal the nettle‘s sting.
Medicinally, in herbal practice, nettle tea was used in the treatment of neuralgia and asthma, to expel worms, and as a blood purifier ~ as John Gay said in 1732, “Elder’s early bud with nettle’s tender shoots, [will] cleanse the blood.” Inhaling the smoke from the dried leaves was also said to relieve asthma and bronchitis.
Saskatoon ~ Amelanchier florida (alnifolia)
The shrub was widely used. The strong, pliable wood was much sought for arrow-making, and the beautiful white flowers, among the first of spring, were seen as a symbol of that season and of the rejuvenating earth, and were used in religious ceremonies.
Government of BC
Alder ~ Alnus tenuifolia
The alders are closely related to the birches.
‘Because of its hardness, some Interior aboriginal people used mountain alder wood for making bows and snowshoes. Because it doesn’t flavour the food, they also used it for smoking and drying salmon and meat. Like red alder, it was a source of dye and a substance for tanning hides. The Carrier made fish nets out of mountain alder and dyed them black by boiling them in their own juice. Fish cannot see the black nets.
Pearly Everlasting ~ Anaphalis margaritacea
The everlastings, as the name suggests, will remain fresh-looking for months when used in floral wreaths. The pearly everlasting may be the most beautiful.
It often shares habitat with yarrow and somewhat resembles it with its broad clusters of small pearly-white flowers topping a long stem on which run lance-shaped leaves.
According to Vogel, the Flambeau tribe spread pulverized flowers of pearly everlasting over live coals to aid a patient stricken by paralysis.

Honey – a natural product, which is created by nature itself. Daily use of this valuable product helps to strengthen the immune system, improve the condition of the body.
However, there are many kinds of honey, each of which has its own healing properties. You can always choose your version of honey, which will be suitable for you. True, especially you can pay attention to fireweed honey among the delicious honeys.
How to get fireweed honey?
Fireweed has long been used in folk medicine to combat a variety of diseases. So, it helps with problems with the upper respiratory tract and has antibacterial and antiviral properties. Of course, the bees do not know it, but they still can not get around this valuable plant.
It is a great honey plant. It attracts bees from a distance, beckoning them by its excellent flavor. Bees collect nectar, from which they make excellent, fragrant fireweed honey. Of course, some people do not like fireweed honey because of its specific appearance.
Fireweed honey or fake?
Often medical experts do not consider fireweed honey as a real one. They are trying to convince others that they face a fake, a cheap substitute, which is better not to take. At such times, naively trusting people choose a different type of honey, but the real experts buy fireweed honey.
Fireweed honey is a slightly yellowish or greenish mass that resembles cream by density. It is quickly crystallized, so it can have clots like grains or flakes. During the crystallization the honey gets a lighter shade, that confuse people. They often think that they see artificial honey and start to take offense.
It turns out that people in their quest to buy a quality, real honey often choose a beautiful but useless fake. It has some dyes and other “wonderful” supplements, which provide a nice, uniform mass. True, there is no benefits of such honey, and you can be poisoned, because you can never know what is added to the false honey for the perfect color.
Also, you may have a severe allergic reaction to these products, but fireweed honey rarely causes irritation. Most often, it helps a person to adapt to different foods, increases the body’s resistance to external factors. Of course, such a miracle can make only real fireweed honey that you learn to accurately distinguish from the best fakes.
Fynbos shrublands occur in a small belt across South Africa. The plant species in this ecosystem are highly diverse, yet the majority of these species are obligate seeders, that is, a fire will cause germination of the seeds and the plants will begin a new life-cycle because of it. These plants may have coevolved into obligate seeders as a response to fire and nutrient-poor soils. Because fire is common in this ecosystem and the soil has limited nutrients, it is most efficient for plants to produce many seeds and then die in the next fire. Investing a lot of energy in roots to survive the next fire when those roots will be able to extract little extra benefit from the nutrient-poor soil would be less efficient. It is possible that the rapid generation time that these obligate seeders display has led to more rapid evolution and speciation in this ecosystem, resulting in its highly diverse plant community.
Prescribed fire is the Preserve’s most powerful resource management tool. You will find references to presrcibed burning throughout the Unit Management Plan. information on prescribed fire and links to additional resource management sites. Prescribed Burning.
Fireweed is an exceptionally colorful plant, its native from the sub-Arctic down the Rocky Mountains across the upper Midwest and down the Appalachians to Georgia. Many people are inspired to try and grow fireweed after they see it in Alaska. It is sometimes called giant showy willow herb.
X I got my seeds while in Alaska from Seeds of Alaska. The packet for 1995 read:
Fireweed is the most colorful wildflower to be seen in Alaska. It takes over recent clearings, burned areas and along roadsides. It is a tall plant, up to 8 feet, with long terminal spike-like clusters of red blossoms. The tender new shoots from older roots are edible. They are eaten raw, cooked, or in the Eskimo matter, soaked in seal oil. The Eskimo name Pahmeyuktuk, describes the edible shoot. Plant with a thin soil cover and keep moist until the tender young plants are well started. Fireweed seed does not germinate well at high temperatures. Fireweed is a perennial and begins blooming the second season.

Precautions/Side Effects/ Warnings
Among all seeds and nuts, poppy seeds are the least allergic. They are totally safe for consumption even by children and pregnant women. The narcotic compounds in poppy seeds are not enough to cause any side effects but if you consume food products made with poppy seeds, be warned that there is a possibility that you may receive a false positive result on tests for banned opiates (as those done on sports people).
Whole or ground organic poppy seeds are available at most supermarkets and health food stores. Since they are high in polyunsaturated fats, they tend to go rancid quickly. Buy only good quality seeds and stored in a cool dry place before using. If stored carefully, fresh poppy seeds can be consumed within six months.
