Information regarding the 2012 Green Garden Tour and a return of the Master Gardeners will be the featured events at the Mar Vista Community Council’s Green Committee booth at the Mar Vista Farmers Market Sunday, Nov. 27.
The gardeners will provide free seeds and seedlings and members of the committee will have a questionnaire for anyone who has questions about next year’s garden tour.
Trained through the University of California Cooperative Extension, the gardeners provide free gardening workshops and technical expertise to approximately 60 community gardens, hundreds of school gardens, and many senior and shelter gardens throughout Los Angeles County.
The committee is already in the planning stage for the environmentally friendly event, which showcases Mar Vista residences in various stages of “green” living, including homeowners who are using drought-resistant plants, have installed storm water retention devices and some who are growing their own food.
An invitation to the tour will be available at the farmers market booth.
The market is at the corner of Venice and Grand View boulevards in Mar Vista.
