The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase will return in 2018! With a few years off to recharge our creative batteries, we’re coming back on Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10am to 4pm for another FUN and FREE celebration of sustainable gardening.
The Los Angeles Audubon Society has been teaching local school children about the Ballona Wetlands since 1991. Every year, 2500 students have the opportunity to visit this special place and see the plants and animals that make Ballona their home. At the moment the State of California has a project planned that will bring serious changes to the existing habitat. The Los Angeles Audubon would love to share more information about the future of the wetlands. Stop by the Green Tent this Sunday to learn more about programs that inspires our future conservationists and what you can do to keep Ballona thriving!
From chickens to beekeeping, rain barrels to composting, native plant selection to garden design overview, our goal is to provide a relaxing day in 20 of Mar Vista’s most beautiful sustainable gardens AND give visitors plenty of know-how to feed their own sustainable garden dreams. Stop by the Mar Vista Farmers Market Green Tent this coming Sunday, January 21st and meet Maggie Begley, the new Chair of the Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase.
So save the date for the 2018 Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase: Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10am to 4pm. In the meantime, you can find inspiration at the MVGGS blog, where images and information from all our past tours are featured.
The Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase is sponsored by environmental non-profit Green Communications Initiative, a 501(c)(3) tax exempt public benefit corporation.
Warm regards and Happy New Year!
