The City of Pittsburg created Living Green Gardens, sited at City Hall. Formerly a lawn, this demonstration garden – which is nearly an acre – models Bay-Friendly practices such as drought tolerant plantings, water efficiency, Integrated Pest Management, the use of compost and mulch, and much more. With attractive educational signage, the garden has involved many community groups and welcomes visitors. For more information, visit www.livinggreengardens.com.
