4th Annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase Offers Glimpses of Your Neighbors' Great Backyards

The Mar Vista Community Council invites you to participate in the FREE 4th Annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 from 10 am to 4pm. See the gardens on the tour here

Featuring 50 new gardens this year, this giant eco-festival is comprised of 90 private resident gardens that you're welcome to wander in and out of. The festival is broken into six compact self-guided walking tours throughout Mar Vista:

One

Two

Three

Four

Five

Six

The tour showcases drought-resistant landscapes and edible gardens with sustainability features ranging from composting techniques to water capture practices. Urban farms range from aquaponic farming to six gardens with chicken coops. This year 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.

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.
