After picking up a map, and a green bag, we went on Tour # 4 of the Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase.
We met proud homeowners and landscape designers, we learnt many new things about drip irrigation, solar panels, garden beds, drought-tolerant plants; useful tips we could implement in our neighborhood as well.
One lovely spot was a backyard certified as a Natural Wildlife Habitat, because it provides the four basic elements for wildlife to thrive: food, water, cover and places to raise young.
Dulcis in fundo, Gary offered delicious dates and strawberries to visitors.
