The gardens around Sebastopol City Hall and Library are known as “Our Front Yard” since they surround the two key buildings in the community. These gardens tell the history of Sebastopol in four distinct sections: a native plants section, a pioneers section, a Luther Burbank section and a permaculture-inspired contemporary garden with an emphasis on low-water use and edible plants. These gardens are a public food forest which was installed by volunteers and they continue to serve as a teaching tool for members of the community. People are encouraged to carefully harvest from the gardens and each month local nonprofit Daily Acts hosts a garden stewardship day to bring people together to maintain the gardens.
