Ocean friendly gardens workshop - in my 'hood

I find it surprising, in the nicest way, that the non-beach, unhip communities are being offered this information. I think I will go and check it out.

FREE Ocean Friendly Garden Workshop

Tuesday, October 19, 2010 - 6:00 - 9:00 pm

Did most of the recent rain water run off your landscaping and into the street instead of being retained by the soil to sustain your plants? We have a solution for that!

Come to a FREE Ocean Friendly Garden workshop presented by the West Basin Municipal Water District, South Bay Environmental Services Center, Surfrider Foundation, and (G3) The Green Gardens Group.
You will learn:

* How to identify what type of soil you have
* What is the best, most optimum soil
* What amendments you can add to get the best results from your soil
* How to turn your landscape into a sponge to capture and hold rain water
* What NOT to add to your garden
* much, much more!

Location: Lomita City Hall, 24300 Narbonne Ave., Lomita, CA 90717

The workshop starts at 6:00 pm, but please try to come early to sign-in.

Refreshments and snacks will be provided.

This event is FREE, and space is limited, so click to register today!

  1. I took a tour of ocean friendly gardens this spring. Then I took the free workshop in Torrance during the summer.

    The garden tour was much more interesting than the class. The class dragged a bit, with too much prostelyizing and too little engineering how-tos.
