Ellen sent me a link reminding me of the Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase on April 21st. On my calendar this event is often overshadowed by the Payne Foundation Garden Tour, however, I've heard good reports from the Mar Vista tour and much of it looks to be walkable from site to site, an advantage over the Payne Foundation tour.
The Mar Vista Community Council invites you to participate in the FREE fourth annual Mar Vista Green Garden Showcase - a citywide Earth Day celebration on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 from 10 am to 4pm. See the gardens on the tour here. We have 50 NEW gardens this year! Use the labels on the side bar to preview the gardens by areas of special interest.
Regardless of whether you go or not, the tour web sites have an abundance of inspiring pictures, so I recommed you check them out.
