GRAB YOUR GARDENING GLOVES AND TROWELS!

Ventura County Surfrider Chapter and Midtown Ventura Community Council have combined cultivation forces in building a California Coastal Native Plant and Ocean Friendly Garden. The garden will demonstrate how rainwater from the roof is captured and directed into “bioswales” that allow water to be used as a resource and reduce runoff.

We need you, Ocean Friendlies, to help with this project tomorrow! It will be a beautiful day to learn about how to get rid of grass, annihilate weeds and forge healthy soil using “Sheet Mulching” technique using wood chips, paper and compost tea.

WHEN//Saturday 7/26/2014  @8am-2pm
WHERE//Loma Vista Elementary School – 300 Lynn Drive, Ventura.

Lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided!
Please bring refillable container (for drinks), sunscreen, a hat and comfortable clothes & shoes to work in.

RSVP to VOLUNTEER at vcsrf.oceanfriendlygardens@gmail.com

The hardscape and bioswales have been completed! Next step…Sheet Mulching!
