This garden, on the border between Mar Vista and Venice, is a flourishing laboratory for making our community more resilient and beautiful.

Come join the homeowners and Transition Mar Vista/Venice for a day of exciting, informational and interactive talks, for great community conversation, togetherness and home-made treats.

Repurposed material greenhouse
Three projects demonstrate Transition Mar Vista/Venice in action:
  • They pulled up the parkway to establish an edible front yard garden with the participation of Good Karma Gardens and seedling master Matt Van Diepen.
  • In the backyard they created a beautiful greenhouse from repurposed old doors and windows. 
  • They installed a grey water system that goes from laundry to landscape, with the education provided by the Transition group's Grey Water workshop.
Come hang out in the garden, and meet members of Transition Mar Vista/Venice - part of the International Transition Movement - dedicated to moving our communities from fossil fuel dependence to local resilience. Transition's purpose is to build community security by encouraging sustainability in our food, water, transportation and health systems and through rebuilding our local economy.
