Jacky Surber (formally Bolbat), a professional organic gardener, has invited us to the garden or micro-"urban farm", of one of her clients, where she has planted many types of fruit trees, berries, herbs, vegetables, flowering perennials and other plants to support a diverse edible ecosystem.

Horticultural challenges such as north facing slopes shaded by three story homes, heavy clay soil beds as well as beds with shallow rocky soil in full sun have inspired unique plantings and solutions for the micro-climate.  The garden is an experiment in attempting to create a local diet that inspires others to get back in touch with their food sources.

IMPORTANT! Because of narrow streets and lack of parking, walking or carpooling to the garden is necessary. It's about a 20-minute walk uphill to the garden. Please park near the Trails Cafe in Griffith Park. Be there by 9:30 to organize walking groups or carpool transport. The last carpool to the garden will leave the Trails Cafe at 10:00 am. After the tour, we can meet up at the Trails Cafe for a picnic before going home.
