Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase 2010

Well, it’s that time again.  Time to get on your walking shoes or bicycle and head out to see some fantastic, clever landscaping in west side Los Angeles.  The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase is just a month away, and will be featuring 80 houses (impossible to see them all, but you can sure try) that focus on either native plants and drought tolerant landscapes, edible gardens, or energy efficient features like solar power or rain barrels.

Once again, our house will be on the tour, but this year we’re opening up the vegetable garden for all to see.  We have added rain barrels to our property and have been using the collected water to irrigate since December – when we shut off the sprinklers.

Come out and visit us on April 25th from 2-6 p.m. (we’re on Tour Route #5), or take the armchair tour on the website:

We’ll also be answering your burning gardening questions too.  See you then!
