GARDENS: Sustainable and Attractive

Piedmont Connect’s Garden Ramble was a success.

On May 22nd, Piedmont Connect held their annual garden tour showcasing sustainable private gardens that were both eye-catching and practical. These ‘green’ gardens delighted numerous participants.

Garden ramblers visited examples of sustainable gardening. The self-guided tour was sponsored by Piedmont Connect, a community group supporting local efforts toward stronger environmental stewardship.

The Ramble highlighted a variety of approaches to creating gardens that are sensitive to water and wildlife, with a focus on California natives and other Mediterranean-climate plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators. Local gardeners created hardscapes using traditional and repurposed ornaments.
