Ocean friendly gardens are springing up

Have you noticed lately the beautiful gardens in front of many midtown Ventura homes? Be a part of this smart and environmentally conscious trend and learn how to transform your tired, brown and water-thirsty lawn into an Ocean Friendly Garden (OFG). Surfrider Foundation's Ventura County Chapter is starting an OFG class series which includes a Basic Class on March 10, a Hands-On Workshop on March 25, and a Garden Assistance Party on May 12. This special program is funded through a Whale Tail Grant and is free to City residents but space is limited. To register for the series, please RSVP at or contact Jill Sarick Santos at the City of Ventura, Environmental Sustainability, at 652-4501. For more information about the OFG program, visit
