Why Plant Natives? Check out the Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase!

12531 Preston Way

Did you know that an average of  40% of the water used in our homes is used to irrigate what we plant? The Mar Vista Community Council Green Committee will be a guest presenter at the Expo on March 29th - stop by to learn about the 7th annual The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase that will be held on April 25th.

This tour of sustainable and edible gardens empowers Angelenos to adopt environmentally conscious living solutions. Each garden has one or more of the following sustainability features: California native/drought tolerant plantings, edibles, water catchment systems or chickens. Visitors can talk with landscapers and meet landscapers as well as do-it-yourself gardeners who share knowledge and experience. Special guest presenters at many gardens will enhance your knowledge of sustainability in daily living. 

Visit their tent at the Water Wise Expo to learn about the gardens on this years tour and get tips on what will be new this year!
