Green Garden Showcase Recruiting Volunteers this Sunday February 12th!

The time is rapidly approaching for the amazing, informative, growing and very popular, Green Garden Showcase!

Showing great community support, signups for the gardens for the 4th Annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase have been a huge success and all are chosen. A big 'Thank You' to everyone who offered their garden or contacted a neighbor! This is our community in action...neighbor to neighbor, everyone helping out. This year there will be close to 40 new gardens and almost 90 in total. Many homeowners are opening their backyards for this amazing tour.

Come by the Green Tent this Sunday and get a preview of some of the very special stops on the tour.

"The tour this year will showcase drought-resistant landscapes and edible gardens with sustainability features ranging from composting techniques to water capture practices.
Urban farms range from 'aquaponic' farming to 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. See how creating outdoor rooms provides much more useful livable space than a traditional lawn and creates a sense of community."

We'll also have tips on how to get the most out of this unique Earth Day event. (Hint: You will not be visiting all 90 gardens.)

We still need your help! -There are many opportunities to contribute an hour or more of your time to make the 2012 Showcase a huge success. Photographers, docents, signage team, data entry and refreshment czar are some of the areas where we can use a hand.

And don’t forget to mark your calendars and tell your friends and family.

April 21, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm is the date of this year’s tour.
