Los Angeles area residents, gardening friends, and sustainability enthusiasts are invited to participate in this free event.
This Earth Day celebration, presented by the Mar Vista Community Council, provides useful information and inspiration for transforming your garden.
This year there are fewer gardens, located in one of sixwalkable/bike-able clusters, so you’ll be able to visit all or most of them. Each garden has one or more of the following sustainability features: California native/drought tolerant plantings, edibles or water catchment systems. Visitors can talk with and meet landscapers as well as do-it-yourself gardeners who share knowledge and experience. Special guest presenters at many gardens will enhance your knowledge of sustainability in daily living.
The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase seeks to empower Angelenos to adopt environmentally conscious living solutions. With many people walking or biking their tours, there is a tremendous sense of community as garden enthusiasts from throughout Southern California join our neighbors to celebrate our shared vision for a greener life.
