First off, thanks to everyone that made it out to the Surfrider Foundation Ocean Friendly Gardens ‘Basics’ workshop last week in Encinitas. It was a great class with a nice mix of attendees. If you missed the basics portion of this three-part workshop there is still an opportunity to attend the ‘Hands On Workshop’ in September and ‘Garden Assistance Program’ in October, both in Encinitas.

The ‘poster-child-garden’ from the first OFG series this spring was just featured in the La Jolla Light…

“Surfrider also hopes to teach homeowners about pollution prevention from lawn pesticides and other items entering the ocean. “It’s (workshops) for people concerned about ocean pollution and what they can do about it at home. I think it adds a lot of value to the home, and it makes your yard almost maintenance-free,” Geever said.”
