This three part series combines a unique classroom session and hands on courses that will show you how to improve or implement your very own Ocean Friendly Garden. With so many of our water quality and supply issues tied to our current landscaping practices, now is the time to step up and help protect our oceans, waves, and beaches!
Whether you are interested in completely redoing your landscape, or just want to install a few Ocean Friendly features, this is the program for you.
Three easy steps to get the most from the Ocean Friendly Gardens Program:
1. Attend the Basics Course lead by Ocean Friendly Garden certified landscape professionals to learn how to apply CPR (Conservation, Permeability and Retention) to your landscape.
2. Attend the Hands On Workshop to apply what you have learned by planning an Ocean Friendly Garden at a local residence.
3. Join in on a Garden Assistance Program workday and help your neighbor implement their Ocean Friendly Garden while learning how to implement features yourself.
The entire program is only $30 and for an additional $10 you can purchase your very own Ocean Friendly Gardens book!
