The L.A. Garden Show is the largest outdoor gardening event on the West Coast that has evolved into a prestigious community gathering, as well as a premier industry event for green gardening in Southern California and beyond. The event illustrates innovative and environmentally responsible garden design and shares knowledge of eco-gardening practices through workshops, lectures, and demonstrations. It also provides specialty plants, books, and home gardening elements.
This year’s event is a tribute to the home gardener and will be an active “How to” guide for living a green gardening lifestyle in Southern California. Workshops, lectures, and demonstrations will range from creating edible gardens to designing with California-friendly plants, to composting and making water-wise choices in home gardens. More>>
