I’m running too quickly to blog right now, so I’ve invited my colleague Caryn Bosson to do a guest post about an upcoming event we’re all pretty excited about…I’ll be on stage throughout the day with friends and special guests bringing some perspective and inspiration about transforming L.A. one house and neighborhood at a time.
For a city that lives on the brink of drought, L.A. squanders a lot of water. Every inch of rain that falls onto our rooftops, streets and parking lots generates 3.8 billion gallons of run off that is mostly channeled into the ocean.
At TreePeople’s 2nd annual Green City Fair on Saturday, May 5, Angelenos can choose from sixteen free workshops on practical techniques for creating more water-absorbent, water-secure, sustainable and beautiful landscapes. At our Center for Community Forestry headquarters, the Green City Fair also features green vendors, food, entertainment, guided hikes and family activities, and demonstrations of how we can get to the sustainable L.A. of the future.
