The Gottleib Native Garden

Written by Mallory Smith & Photography by Susan Gottleib

Renowned around the country and revered within the Los Angeles environmental community, the Gottlieb Native Garden is a National Wildlife Federation-certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat. It is brimming with nature yet located less than a mile from the busy streets of Beverly Hills. Susan Gottlieb, the dedicated environmentalist who created the garden believes we could save the world if we all understood the power of native plants. This book is her story, as well as a larger one: the story of how to restore natural habitat and protect biodiversity with simple, individual actions.

Mallory wrote and produced "Biome" which aired on San Francisco's public radio station, KQED.
