Landscape with a cause - The Surfrider Foundation

Last Saturday, volunteers installed an "Ocean Friendly Garden" (OFG) at the site of the home our affiliate repaired.  Not to shower our own selves with praise or anything, but the home preservation turned out wonderful, thanks to the City of Ventura, the Westside Community, OFG and ALL the volunteers that came out in full force to assist another deserving homeowner.

The folks from OFG have a really cool philosophy about water retention and we couldn't be more thrilled for the opportunity to have partnered with them on this home preservation project.  There is a true science to looking beautiful and being environmentally friendly.  We are grateful to Morrie, Laura, Tyrone, Paul and Jill for spearheading an exceptional effort that lead to a stunning result!

Last, but certainly not least, I would like to give a special shout out to Lori from the Westside Community Council (WCC) and to the WCC itself for treating volunteers to coffee and morning goodies from Django's.  Thank you Lori and the WCC!  If you are ever in Ventura's Westside, make sure you visit Maureen at Django's.  Their coffee and pastries are simply amazing!
