Meet the Organizer

Hello, I am Peggy Kramer, the coordinator of the
South Bay Water Wise Garden Tour since 2010

A little background about me (drum roll please)….In 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had 5 surgeries in one year and a really long recuperation. For me, time stopped and then kinda slowed down. I had worked for the airlines (PSA, UsAir, now American) for over 20 years in a very fast past environment, so this was a shock.

I began to view my environment  differently. I watched as my neighbors frequently mowed, fertilized and watered their lawns. In a way, it was comforting, as it reminded me of my childhood; the sound of the mowers, the smell of fresh cut grass and wet earth. But then I thought, hey this S. California we have water challenges here. We have droughts. What has happened to all the bees, butterflies and birds? And this was before water rationing/limits and rules started due to our droughts.


So...(drum roll) here we are, creating a little bit of heaven where we champion the little guy (bees, butterflies, birds) by planting gardens that will feed them and respecting that our water supply is limited and very precious.


Come see what we have done. Enjoy.

— Peggy
