FREE Water Wise Class:  Ocean Friendly Gardens

On Saturday, October 12, 2013,   from 10am-11:30am, Ventura Water, Aqua-flo and Green Thumb Nursery presented the second in a series of six Water Wise classes.  The topic for the day was “How to employ Ocean Friendly Garden principles of CPR- Conservation, Permeability and Retention."

Ocean Friendly Gardens is a trademark of Surfrider Foundation and OFGs, as they’re also known, are beautiful, easy-to-maintain, and serve as vehicles to assist in the prevention of stormwater pollution.

Laura Bauer, BauerFineGardening.com, gave a talk and presented an informative slide show that took the audience through the concepts of an Ocean Friendly Garden, how it works, as well some examples of beautiful native plants.  SustainableVentura.TV spoke to some of the attendees who took the class.
