Organizers of the 6th Annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase have released a list of home gardens that will be participating in the self-guided tour on Saturday, April 26 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. This Earth Day celebration, presented by the Mar Vista Community Council, provides useful information and inspiration for transforming your garden.

This year there are fewer gardens, located in one of a few walkable/bike-able clusters, so you'll be able to visit all or most of them. 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.
