Monumento del compartir Por: Fruta Caída (David Burns y Austin Young)

Sí, tenemos una historia. Es una hermosa historia y… bueno, para nosotros es “bonita”.

Mi infancia se destaca cuando pienso en el barrio.

Nosotros vinimos a este país por la necesidad de una vida mejor.

Como todos los inmigrantes llegamos sin nada. Las personas nos ayudaron con alimentos.

Ahora que hemos estado aquí por mucho tiempo, nosotros compartimos con personas necesitadas.

Cada uno aquí es diferente en su propia manera. Mi familia es de México.

Mis hijos vivieron sus vidas aquí y siempre compartieron con nuestra comunidad.

Realmente compartir es simplemente tiempo, convivir o tomarse el tiempo para hacer algo con los demás.

Si tú le das a alguien una manzana, estás compartiendo con ellos.

Compartir significa que estás haciendo feliz a alguien.

Hay siempre una mujer en el estacionamiento. Algunas veces le digo hola y le doy algo. Sé que ella no la tiene fácil.

Compartir… es una expresión de amor, mostrando cuánto deseas conectar.

Yo comparto mi vida con  mis hijos, todo lo que aprendo, todo lo que hago.

Tenemos una gran cosecha en nuestra cultura. Adoramos todo lo que viene de la tierra.

Mi familia es de Vietnam y ellos llegaron aquí durante la guerra.

Me gusta que aquí es tranquilo y hermoso, todos son agradables y amistosos.

Mi familia hace algo donde nosotros tenemos un montón de fruta y la ponemos en un altar.

Siempre es seguro aquí.  Todos se conocen. Nosotros solíamos tomar naranjas que encontrábamos flotando en el río.

Yo como una naranja con mi amigo y la dividimos, la partimos a la mitad.

Yo crecí en El Savador. Nací en Belice. Soy de Corea.

Es importante estar alrededor  de diferentes tipos de personas. Es importante sentir  la naturaleza y tener espacio para respirar.

Toda mi vida he necesitado estar en un área de mezclas que estuviera abierta a diferentes culturas como ésta.

Me mudé aquí del  Noroeste. Cuanta  más gente conozco, más me siento conectado.

Yo hago un muy buen pay de manzana. ¿Tú y yo? Compartamos un pay.

Soy Guatemalteco. Mi familia hace higos caramelizados. Los ponemos en el horno y salen dulces y crujientes.

He estado aquí  por 28 años, de Canton. Mi esposa y yo recolectamos jujubes ayer.

En la cultura China, son buenos para condimentar  porque son dulces.

Compartir es supervivencia para todos. Compartir es esencial para la vida –Es cómo conoces nuevos amigos.

Yo nací en Michoacán. He estado aquí por 56 años.

Yo comparto mi árbol de limón. Quienquiera uno, vaya por él. Es para todos, no sólo para mí. Cuando me vaya  de aquí, éste se quedará.

Compartir es como el amor. Mi más grande felicidad es asegurarme de que alguien más sea cuidado.
Cuando estoy comiendo algo,  lo único que lo hace saber  grandioso, es decirle a la persona junto a mí… “¿Gustas?”.

分享的紀念碑 自 落果 (大衛 ‧伯恩斯 和奧斯丁‧ 楊)

是的,我有一個故事。一個美麗的故事以及…對於我們來說這是”小小的,漂亮的一個”。

我童年最深刻的記憶就是我的隣里。

我們來到這個國家,為了更美好的生活。

和所有移民一樣,我們到來時,甚麼也沒有。別人給予食物,幫助我們。

現在,我們在這裡已經很久,我們分享予有需要的人。

每個人在這裡都是不同的。我的家人來自墨西哥。

我的孩子過著這裡的生活,與此同時他們常常把生活分享與我們的社區。

分享真的僅僅是時間,花時間或用時間和別人做某事。

如果你給別人一個橘子,你是在與他們分享。

分享意味著你令別人快樂。

有一位女士總是在停車場徘徊。有時我會跟她打招呼以及給她一些東西。我知道她的生活有點困難。

分享……是愛的表達,表示你想與他人有多少聯繫。

我與我的孩子分享我的生活,分享我所學的一切,我所做的一切。

在我們的文化中有很大的豐年祭。我們崇敬一齊來自於大地的。

我的家人來自越南,他們在戰爭期間來到這裡。

我喜歡這裡的安靜和美麗,每個人都很好,很友善。

當我們得到一堆水果,我的家人會把它放進神社。

這裡總是安全的。每個人也互相認識。我們以前常常從河裡得到一些漂浮的橘子。

我和朋友一起吃橘子,我們把它分開,切成兩半。

我在薩爾瓦多長大。我出生在伯利茲。我來自韓國。

被不同類型的人圍繞是重要的。體驗自然以及擁有呼吸的空間是重要的。

我的一生需要活在一個對不同文化持開放態度的大熔爐,就好像這裡。

我從西北移到這裡。我遇到的人越多,越感到自己的融入。

我做了一個非常好的蘋果餡餅。我和你?一起分享一個餡餅。

我是危地馬拉人。我的家人做焦糖無花果,把它放進烤箱裡,它們出來是又甜又脆。

我從廣東來了這裡28年。昨天我和我的妻子一起採集棗。

在中國的文化中,它們是很好的調味料,因為它們是甜的。

分享是每個人求生的技能。分享是生活必不可少的—這是讓你如何認識新朋友。

我在米却肯州出生。我在這裡已經56年了。

我分享我的檸檬樹。誰想要,去吧!這是屬於大家的,不只是屬於我的。當我離開了,它會留下來。

分享就像愛,是我最大的快樂,是確保別人得到照顧。

當我吃東西時,唯一能令我覺得食物真棒的方法,就是和我身旁的人說話……”這裡”。

A Monument To Sharing by Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young)

A Monument To Sharing 

by Fallen Fruit (David Burns and Austin Young)

Yes, I have a story. It’s a beautiful story and a… Well to us it’s “bonita.”

My childhood stands out when i think about the neighborhood.

We came to this country out of necessity for a better life.

Like all immigrants we arrived with nothing. People helped us with food.

Now that we’ve been here for so long, we share with people in need.

Everyone here is different in their own way. My family is from mexico.

My Kids lived their lives here and always shared with our community.

Sharing is really just time, spending time or taking time to do something with others.

If you give someone an orange, you are sharing with them.

Sharing means you are making someone happy.

There is a woman always by the parking lot. Sometimes I say hi and give her something. I know she has it kinda rough.

Sharing… is an expression of love, showing how much you want to connect.

I share my life with my kids, everything I learn, everything I do.

We have a big harvest in our culture. We worship anything that comes from the ground.

My family is from Vietnam and they came here during the war.

I like that it’s quiet and beautiful here, everyone is nice and friendly.

My family does this thing where we get a bunch of fruit and we put it into a shrine.

It’s always safe here. Everyone knows each other. We used to get oranges we would find floating down the river.

I eat an orange with my friend and we split it, cut it in half.

I grew up in El Salvador.  I was born in Belize. I’m from Korea.

It is important to be around different types of people. It is important to experience nature and have room to breathe.

My whole life I needed to be in a melting pot area that was open to different cultures like this.

I moved here from the Northwest. The more people I meet, the more I feel connected.

I make a really good apple pie. you and I?  Share a pie together.

I’m Guatemalan. My family makes caramelized figs. Put them in the oven and they come out sweet and crunchy.

I’ve been here 28 years, from Canton. My wife and I gathered Jujubee yesterday.

In Chinese culture, they are good for flavoring because they’re sweet.

Sharing is survival for everybody. Sharing is essential to life –it’s how you meet new friends.

I was born in Michoacán. I’ve been here for 56 years.

I share my lemon tree. Whoever wants one, go for it. It’s for everyone, not just for me. When I leave here, it will stay.

Sharing is like love my greatest happiness is making sure someone else is taken care of.

When i’m eating something the only thing that makes it taste the epitome of awesome, is to say to the person next to me… “here.”

L.A. Conservation Corps Turns 25

L.A. Conservation Corps

April 29th, LASHP was the site of a very special day for LACC. They joined us at the park to celebrate their 25th year of service in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Conservation Corps is the largest non-profit urban conservation corp in the nation. The organization provides education and work experience for at-risk and school aged youth in local environmental and conservation projects. The event was a wonderful celebration of the success of the Corps and the dedication of its young members working to improve their communities professional opportunities. Click the link to view LACC’s slideshow of images from the wonderful day!

Here are a few of our own.

Park User Submission: Botanical

African Daisy

Here at LASHP we are excited to begin accepting more photos and information from park users like you! Here is a photograph of an african daisy, submitted by park visitor Lisa. She informed us that the daisy is an invasive species that is also known as Dimorphotheca aurantiaca from the Asteraceae family. This photograph taken by Lisa was shot on an iphone using a macro lens.

We have seen these beautiful, but pesky, invasive plants in the park for sometime. With 2″-4″ flowers, at a distance they can often be mistaken for the California Poppy. But these are not native, and tend to be a bit darker orange than the poppy. And unlike the native poppy, african daisies range in color, from orange, to purple and pink.

Thank you for this wonderful submission Lisa, and we look forward to others to come.

Your Stories #1

This memory comes to us from Keleigh, she writes

I have spent quite a bit of time in the park, but I must say that one of my most enjoyable days there was during summer. It was a beautiful day and I sat with my nearest and dearest as we watched the beautiful skyline of downtown and munched on juicy pomegranate. It is always pleasant at LASHP and I will be back.

Thanks for your thoughts Keleigh, and if you have a story to tell leave it as a comment on our “Your Stories” tab.
