1080 Emeline Ave.Building DSanta Cruz, CA 95060


Just before Earth Day, the County will be investing in a landscape make over in front of the County Public Health Building D. Turf removed from this area and replaced with beautiful, drought-tolerant landscaping will conserve approximately 50,000 gallons of water/year. Ecology Action invites County staff and the community to participate in the workshop to learn how to convert your lawn or weedy landscape into a Monterey Bay Friendly Garden using sheet mulching, water-wise plants, drip irrigation, and downspout redirection to rain gardens and bioswales. This community lawn removal event will take place on Saturday, April 15 from 10:00am-1pm. All participants that pre-register and participate in the workshop will be entered into a raffle to win a FREE professional Monterey Bay Friendly Landscape design, valued at $500! Community service hours are available through Ecology Action. This hands-on workshop is sponsored by the Santa Cruz County Water Conservation Coalition and the County of Santa Cruz.
