SELVA International, a Mar Vista based environmental non-profit, has partnered with conservation biologist and sustainable landscape professional Steven Williams to offer EcoGardens, a landscape service to help you convert your water thirsty lawn to an ecological garden.
Learn how your garden can:
• Conserve water
• Save money
• Grow native plants to attract birds and butterflies
• Reduce polluted runoff to our beaches
• Collect and use rainwater
• Support our local community
Selva EcoGardens is pleased to announce that they have recently been awarded another Community Partnership grant from LADWP, and will be looking for a garden host in the Mar Vista area for at least one of the five grant-subsidized Hands On Workshop gardens. If interested in applying, sign up at their table!
At the Green Tent**, SELVA International will display before and after pictures of sustainable, "Ocean Friendly Gardens." They'll have information handouts on SELVA's EcoGardens program and Surfrider's Ocean Friendly Gardens program. They'll have some CA native plants local to our area. Get your questions answered and free advice on ecological landscaping!
**NOTE: This Sunday, our Green Tent guest will be inside the big, white Mar Vista Meetup tent instead of under our green canopy.
