The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
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:
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.
