Future City Gardens
Sunday, October 18 - UCSC
I imagine the gardens where I grow in LA will soon look something like this, just on a smaller scale. You can't see the rows, but they're there. Growing in rows makes the work easier. One of the gardens where I grow in Silver Lake has a formal design. The homeowner put a fountain in the middle of the garden and it looks beautiful. It used to be filled with flowers of course, but I think it will look just as lovely filled with vegetables - and flowers.
All around the field in this picture: perennials, habitats.
I walked the fields at UC Santa Cruz for hours, drinking it all in for inspiration.
