Ocean Friendly Garden Summer/Fall Series Available

The San Diego Chapter of Surfrider Foundation is stoked to announce we will be offering another OFG series in the San Diego area. . .this time in North County!

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 (Conservation, Retention, and Permeability)

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 $40 (including all three events) and even includes the official Ocean Friendly Gardens textbook (a $20 value).
