Conserving Water With Native Plants - Learn How on March 16th!

A single-family residential customer may use 140 gallons of water a day - and about 40 percent of that is used outdoors to water our lawns.

Marcia Hanscom of Ballona Institute will present information about how planting with native plants helps to conserve water, and also even conserve energy!   She will talk about the things you need to consider when determining which native plants will work in your yard.  Ballona Institute has been working for four years with two schools in the LA Unified School District, growing native plants from seeds and cuttings, and realizing the need for more nurseries and others to grow native plants so we can bring back more native songbirds, butterflies and other pollinators to the flora in our region.

Sunday March 16th 9 AM to 2 PM

Corner of Grand View & Venice, Mar Vista, CA.
