Hope you are keeping cool this summer! With the hot weather and the continuing drought, an Ocean Friendly Garden, one that applies CPR – Conserves water, Permeates water into the soil and Retains rainwater on site – is just the ticket. If you want to learn more, trainings and workshops are being scheduled.

Professional Training
Ocean Friendly Gardens is pleased to announce two Watershed Wise Landscape Professional training series led by G3 have been scheduled September 24, 25 and January 25, 26!

Do you want to be educated and get involved with the New Normal in California landscapes? Then this is the training for you or a professional you know!

Hands On Workshop
Perhaps you’d rather get some Hands On action! Come and learn about soil health and rainwater as a resource and the associated slow it, spread it, sink it concepts by helping to implement a watershed wise landscape at a local home in North Clairemont. A tentative date of Oct 24th has been set and there will be more information to follow.

Healthy Soil
Kiss the Ground, supported by Jason Mraz, is promoting a petition calling for the allocation of $160 million in state monies to help reverse climate change. The money will support building healthy soil to “sequester” (store) carbon from our atmosphere, where it is harmful, and pull it back into the earth, where it belongs, through regenerative agriculture, composting, and other land management practices.
