Remember Swales?

Remember Swales?

Back in October we published a post about a permaculture-based garden that was being created, replacing a 3,000 square-foot, water-greedy lawn at Throop Unitarian Universalist Church. Swale-building was on the menu the very first weekend, and in our article’s opening paragraph, we actually had to define “swale,” because, well, that’s just not a part of [...]

A Garden of Their Own

They’re in for the long haul. Several years ago, Charles W. Eliot Middle School in Altadena won the governor’s physical fitness challenge and received $100,000.

Yes, we said it: 12″ x 12.” No comprende? C’est impossible? Well then, we suggest you come and attend the [...]

Home & Garden—A Personal Touch

Home & Garden—A Personal Touch

Julie O’Keefe says she wanted her shop Julie O’Keefe’s Home & Garden in La Canada to feel like walking into someone’s home—only more decorated. Having been in retail since her first job when she was 16 years old, Julie has had her hand in this particular business for seventeen years. Many people may remember it [...]

Cleaning Up This Mess

As city crews continue to remove fallen trees and other green storm debris from Pasadena streets and parks, residents are asked to help by moving their green debris out to the gutter as soon as possible for easy pickup.
