In celebration of Earth Day, the Mar Vista Community Council presents this walking tour of local gardens.
From the event website:
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 gardens with 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.The showcase, now in its fifth year, drew an estimated 2,000 attendees in 2012. The event runs until 4 p.m.
