The home garden of UCLA climate scientist Alex Hall will be featured as part of the Theodore Payne Foundation’s 20th anniversary Native Garden Tour this Saturday, April 15. Hall, a professor of atmospheric and oceanic sciences and interim director of the Sustainable LA Grand Challenge, has been developing his sustainability demonstration garden for about eight years. It incorporates large spaces devoted to native plants.

The nonprofit foundation, named for the late English horticulturist and landscape designer, is dedicated to promoting and preserving California native plants.

In addition to the tour, there will be a five-episode podcast featuring a conversation between Hall and Evan Meyer, executive director of the Theodore Payne Foundation, around the topics of building of a garden, water conservation and habitat restoration in urban Los Angeles.

Below are a few selections from Hall’s garden.
