Our Garden Assistance Program has been moved to December 3rd!

The San Diego Chapter of Surfrider Foundation will be offering another Ocean Friendly Garden Series in the San Diego area this fall.

The Basics Class will be held on September 15th from 6-8pm at the Buena Vista Lagoon Nature Center (2202 South Coast Highway Oceanside, CA 92054), the Hands On Workshop will be on October 2nd from 10:30am-12:00pm and the Garden Assistance Program workday will be on December 3rd from 9:30am-3:30pm in Oceanside near Cassidy Street.

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 OFG Basics Course lead by OFG certified landscape professionals to learn the CPR’s of gardening.
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 $25 (including all three events) and this even includes the official Ocean Friendly Gardens textbook.  If you would like to register for the event please RSVP to  You can also pay now via Paypal.
