Location: Calabasas (Map Provided with Reservation)

Join us in supporting Mountains Restoration Trust and Theodore Payne Foundation for a timely and innovative, self-guided garden tour. You’ll learn how native plant landscaping can help protect properties in high-risk fire areas by touring gardens that demonstrate best-practices.

The tour features an expansive mountainside garden designed, installed and maintained by FormLA Landscaping. There are two additional gardens, each with at least 50 percent California natives.
Docents, including FormLA president Cassy Aoyagi and landscape architect Eric Crow will be on hand in the FormLA garden. Throughout the tour, docents will discuss design and maintenance techniques that minimize danger to the home, including plant selection and home preparation.
