We will be removing any remaining turf grass, building healthy soil by sheet mulching (laying materials to prevent sunlight sparking re-growth of the grass and creating new soil), finishing up a dry stream, installing native and climate-appropriate plants, and low-flow irrigation. Lunch will be provided. Stop by for a couple hours or join us for the whole day, we just ask that you let us know you are coming so we have enough equipment for everyone.
If you have any questions about the event, please contact the Ocean Friendly Gardens co-chair, Shauna McKellar, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
An Ocean Friendly Garden (OFG) applies CPR to revive our watersheds and oceans:
C – Conservation – properly-spaced native & climate appropriate plants (fruit & veggies ok);
P – Permeability – healthy soil & mulch act like a sponge & hardscape directs water into garden;
R – Retention – directing rain water into the garden and preventing runoff.
