Ocean Friendly Garden Workshop

West Basin Municipal Water District
FREE Ocean Friendly Garden Workshop

Saturday, October 22, 2011 - 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
South Coast Botanic Garden
Palos Verdes Peninsula

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 fun and FREE Ocean Friendly Garden Workshop presented by (G3) The Green Gardens Group, Surfrider Foundation, West Basin Municipal Water District, and the South Bay Environmental Services Center.

You will learn to reduce water usage, lower your costs for watering your landscape and reduce dry-weather run-off to our oceans using the latest sustainable materials and techniques. The workshop will cover:

How to develop an aesthetically pleasing and water conserving "Ocean Friendly Garden" using native and other drought tolerant plants
Water efficient irrigation devices (such as "smart" sprinkler controllers and drip irrigation)
Permeable "hardscape" materials and on-site water retention techniques to reduce dry-weather run-off pollution to the ocean.
Preventing wet-weather runoff.

Saturday, October 22
