Theodore Payne Virtual Garden Tour

Download PDF

As the corona virus spreads and LA is facing an exponential increase in infections, illnesses and even death, our new reality is a stay-at-home world. Theodore Payne was scheduled to run its popular Native Plant Garden Tour this weekend. As it became apparent that they could not hold the tour, they quickly and creatively converted it to a virtual experience. Hope you are enjoying the garden visits right now either on Youtube or Zoom.

Garden 28, Wild Suburbia

My house, Garden 28, will be featured on Sunday, March 29th from 12:30 – 12:50. Unfortunately neither my Wifi nor cell signals are strong enough for me to walk you through the garden live at that time. So, we decided to try something new as well. My husband and I created the following virtual tour on Thursday. It took over a day to get them uploaded, but you can see them on the Wild Suburbia Facebook page or YouTube. It is also embedded in this blog post.

    Barbara, your virtual tour is a big hit here in the Northern Sierra Foothills. Lovely plantings and good explanation of how the garden has evolved and what the benefits are to wildlife, particularly the lawn removal, the rich variety of berried plants, and leaving the fallen leaves in place. Thanks for your gardening and filming efforts.

      Thanks for your comment, Barbara. So many people are doing so much to try to change gardening practices here in CA and everywhere. Now that people are at home during weekdays, hopefully they will recognize how appalling the mow-and-blow practice is! Noise, pollution and habitat destruction! Argh!

  2. That was great. Love your garden.
