Should your garden be on the tour?

The 5th Annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase

Please help us recruit gardens for the tour! 

The Mar Vista Community Council invites you to participate in the FREE fifth annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase - a citywide Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 20th, 2013 from 10 am to 4pm.       

The tour showcases drought-resistant landscapes and urban farms with sustainability features ranging from composting techniques to water capture practices and chicken coops. The tour places special emphasis on the critical need for ocean friendly gardens and California native gardens that support much needed pollinators such as honey bees and monarch butterflies. See how creating outdoor rooms provides much more useful livable space than a traditional lawn and creates a sense of community. 

This giant eco-festival will be broken into 6 compact self-guided walking tours throughout Mar Vista. The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase seeks to empower Los Angelenos to adopt environmentally conscious living solutions. With most people walking or biking their tours, there is a tremendous sense of community as residents throughout Southern California come to Mar Vista to celebrate our shared vision for a greener life.
