Here’s a Guide to Gardening for Cleaner Waves and Coasts

When: Saturday November 21, 2009
10 a.m.-4 p.m.
2440 Mattison Lane, Santa Cruz


Combine your two loves and learn how to make your gardens more ocean-friendly.

Attend a FREE Ocean Friendly Gardens Workshop and learn how!

Ocean Friendly Gardens is a Surfrider Foundation Project promoted primarily in Southern California. Why not bring it up-coast to Santa Cruz and Monterrey Bay?

CONSERVATION: water; fertilizers; pesticides, landscape design…PERMEABILITY: slow and hold water….
RETENTION: strategies to help landscapes collect water..

We’ll have a smiling crew of UCSC students out there to show you what this project is all about. Tell them “THANKS for BEING SO ENVIRONMENT ACTIVE!” Someone has to do it, right?

Surfrider, Santa Cruz, plans to be there, so we hope to see YOU, too!
