Growing the future
Los Angeles County’s Arboretum & Botanic Garden has bountiful attractions across its 127 acres, from towering trees to preening peacocks. Now it’s grown a new one: Crescent Farm.
The farm showcases modern and ancient water conservation practices—but it’s far from drab. This gallery of photographs offers a vivid sneak peek at a colorful spread that has visitors—of both the human and insect varieties—buzzing.
Crescent Farm may be small; it was created on just one acre of land formerly devoted to lawn. But its aspirations are huge: no less than helping us reimagine the Los Angeles landscape in a period when “water is the greatest factor that defines the scenery of our lives.” The Arboretum is located at 301 North Baldwin Ave, Arcadia, CA 91007.
