In celebration of Earth Day, Mar Vista is having its annual Green Garden Showcase this Sunday, April 25. From their website:
This free, self guided garden tour is all about water conservation. These homeowners have all made choices to eliminate or reduce turf lawns and have created gardens that thrive in our Southern California climate while using minimal water. Many are investing the water they use to grow fruits and vegetables for their families to enjoy.
80 families will open their gardens to you on Sunday afternoon from 2-6pm. While it is a self-guided tour, the homeowners will be available to talk to you about their gardens and share resources and information on how you can start converting your garden to use less water and still look stunning.
Make sure to stop at the sign-in booth (3972 Coolidge Ave) where you can get a free reusable canvas bag, and your choice of free doggie bags, t-shirts or canvas tote bags from LA Stormwater as well as LADWP info on rebate and conservation programs.
