Great Leap’s Show & On Spring’s Urban Green LA Cuisine

September 18, 2010

Last weekend, I supported my friend Zumi by watching her fantastic performance in Great Leap‘s theatrical show called “Collaborative VIII: Order To Go”.  This year’s theme focused on “the environmental impact of take-out food containers and utensils!”  Congrats to Zumi and all of the performers & organizers for putting together such a compelling show on a timely topic!  For more info on the project, click here for Great Leap’s website; meanwhile, for a detailed review of the performance, click here for Maria Hsin’s article on Culver City Patch.

During the performance, some healthy catering delights were available courtesy of Rickey Smith, founder of Urban Green LA.  I tried a couple of the delicious organic vegan/vegetarian sandwiches & wraps.  The one particular tortilla wrap that enchanted me consisted of the following ingredients:

not the actual wrap, but it looks somewhat similar lol

  • Whole Wheat Tortilla Wrap
  • Brown Rice
  • Green Lentils
  • Cherries
  • Oranges
  • Parsley
  • Green Onions
  • Citrus Zest Vinaigrette

I enjoyed that wrap so much that it has inspired me to learn how to make it!  & I am still thinking about it a week later!  That was how memorable it was.  I am sprung on On Spring‘s culinary creation!

Recently, in Downtown L.A./Chinatown area, Urban Green LA built On Spring, an organic cafe on 1279 North Spring Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012. According to the website, On Spring is:

A community event space, functioning urban garden, sustainable agricultural educational center and organic cafe—aiming to instill the interrelated disciplines of cuisine, agriculture, architecture and renewable energy in urban Los Angeles.

Maybe in the near future, I can check out On Spring & see what happens there!  More on Urban Green:

Urban Green was designed upon Rickey’s philosophy of Circular Synergy, which seeks to establish a CLEAR path connecting the inter-disciplines of Cuisine, Land-use, Environment, and Architecture into Renewable cycles of self-reliant communities.

Congrats again Great Leap artists & organizers!

Thank you Rickey Smith & Urban Green LA!
