This 20-year-old community garden is a long-standing bastion of earth-friendly landscaping and important neighborhood wildlife habitat. Irrigated mainly with reclaimed water, the 2/3 acre property is planted with a colorful medley of mostly California natives with other attractive Mediterranean-climate plants that thrive in sandy soil and coastal conditions. A pondless waterfall, dry streambed, and composting toilet are just a few points of interest. Look out for the official Manhattan Beach City Flower, beach primrose (Camissonia cheiranthifolia), propagated by volunteers on-site.
