March 1 to 3.  Digital Nature

Digital Nature LA Arboretum

It’s a technology and natural world collaboration at the Los Angeles Arboretum Tomatoes! “Digital Nature 2019” is a contemporary art exhibit inspired by the natural world and technology, with 18 artists projecting their beautiful work onto the lush garden landscape outdoors. Wow!

Tomatoes can experience amazing video and sound installations, some interactive or live and some silent, but all art installations explore themes like butterfly camouflage, bird songs, heavy metal, and inter-active digital wildflowers to name a few. Digital Nature 2019 is curated by Shirley Alexandra Watts. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.

March 2. Food Truck Extravaganza

Malibu Wines and Gardens

There’s a brand spankin’ new and super cool “Malibu Wines” in town Tomatoes. I’ve heard great things about the “Malibu Wines and Beer Garden” in West Hills located in Historic Cultural Monument. Their “Food Truck Extravaganza” is a perfect time to try this new destination for local wines Tomatoes. Yum!

Food Truck Extravaganza

It will be wonderful day of delish eats from food trucks, Malibu local wine, and craft beer. And there’ll be live music. The San Fernando Valley is not really known as being much of a wine destination. But the new “Malibu Wines and Beer Garden”, owned & operated by the Semler family, also owners of Saddlerock Ranch and longtime winemakers in the greater Malibu area, will change that perception. The West Hills location is fast becoming a favorite wine tasting destination with its lush and large indoor/outdoor space at the historic and gorgeous Spanish-influenced estate owned by 1930s-era actor Francis Lederer. Now that sounds like a great place to imbibe Tomatoes!

March 7. March Forth

March 7.  Matriarch of the Rainforest

Matriach of the rainforest

If you want to celebrate Women’s History Month in the glorious surroundings of the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias, inspired and truly stunning, Garden, then make your reservations for “Matriarch of the Rainforest: The Adventures & Work of Mildred E. Mathias” NOW.  This free event fills up fast.  Fingers and toes crossed that space is still available to Tomatoes who love the glorious legacy of Mildred Mathias and the beauty of gardens.

Mildred E. Mathias held many titles over the years: the world authority on carrots, one of the first female faculty members at UCLA, mother of four, inspired teacher, an author and an adventurous woman who was driven by curiosity and love of science drove her to shake the societal norms for women and to break into the academic world of science. At the “Matriarch of the Rainforest” event, Tomatoes can travel the world with a slide show presentation of Mildred’s original photographs from her adventures across the globe. View items from Mildred’s life and legacy at UCLA along with those who knew Mildred sharing their memories of her. What an incredible woman!
