` G3’s purpose is to transform our environment by motivating people to use their landscape to save soil, sequester carbon, secure water supplies, restore watersheds, and employ members of our G3 Community. Pamela received the Association of Professional Landscape Designers International (APLD) 2014 Service Award for her work as Legislative/Advocacy Chair of the California Chapter and remains active as a Past President of the California Chapter and a member of the Executive Committee.  Pamela is an American Rain Water Catchment Systems Association (ARCSA) Accredited Professional since 2012 and continues to participate in the California Landscape Contractors’ Association (CLCA).


Don’t let your newly landscaped garden wash a way! (Yes, this really did happen to some unsuspecting homeowners). Learn how to build an effective, watershed wise and sustainable landscape. Professionals are being trained now and homeowner classes are coming soon!
