Waterwise action takes forward thinking

By now, many L.A. residents have heard the phrase "waterwise," and some may have even visited "bewaterwise.com." Some may have gone even further and implemented water-saving tips during the drought. For examples in how to grow drought-tolerant gardens, angelenos can visit Descanso Gardens' native plant area or Los Angeles Arboretum. However, one might have to change expectations for the highlighter-green lawn, brought to this country from rainy England.

Even more helpful to the California landscape is edible landscaping, when designed around water-conscious edibles. These garden designs both beautify the home and feed families, while putting water--artificially transported from sites of wildlife habitat--to use, rather than throwing it away on Barbie's vanity lawn.

Most importantly, thanking the body of water, no matter from where it is channeled, helps put the logical mind in a greater state of connection with the strange phenomenon that is our modern water system, and helps the spirit find its own ways to preserve, protect, and harmonize with its source.
