Snoop Dogg's 'Mind Gardens' Launches LA Community Garden Competition


When Snoop Dogg went to Jamaica a few years ago, he knew he had to do something about the poverty, he said. So he launched Mind Gardens, a nonprofit with the goal of creating and supporting community gardens.

As part of that effort, he's begun an "Adopt-A-Garden" contest running through Wednesday where four Los Angeles gardens compete for funding through votes on Facebook: Little Green Fingers, LA CAN Rooftop Garden, EnrichLA Community Garden and Walter Reed Middle School. Reed's Ginger Brew is partnering with Snoop in putting on the competition; vote here for your favorite garden.

Luckily, all four will win some money: first place gets $2,000, second gets $1,000, third $500 and fourth $250.

We love this idea… bringing a different kind of "green" to kids who need it.
