Being intentional and mindful of the earth and the ocean, YOU can start in your garden with a swale, rain barrels, and the proper design to create a natural cycle.

Our garden owner and speaker will share about how she learned about rain gardens via volunteering for the Surfrider Foundation, and how she created it in her own gardens. Her garden is considered as a showcase of her passion. One could find solace and awe as you enter this garden. Everything has its place of beauty and it is well designed that you feel that you have entered another portal of greenery.
