The West Adams Heritage Association opens the gates of eleven private gardens which all feature native plants in historical settings throughout the West Adams District. All of the front yards and some back yards will be open to view, with knowledgeable owners and docents who will describe the plants and the benefits of "going native."
The gardens on this self-guided driving tour will showcase reduced water use, reduced (or eliminated) chemical and pesticide use, improved habitat and benefits for birds and bees, and the unique aesthetic appeal of gardens designed with California native plants.
Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as you may be walking over somewhat uneven surfaces.
