Regrouping for next month, no meeting tonight!

Our next Encinitas Lawn Patrol will be SUNDAY MAY 22nd at 10am.   We will meet at the end of Encinitas Blvd at Moonlight Beach and check out our latest OFG and a few other gardens that have made a great start! 

Our next meeting will be May 31st at 7pm, keep posted for the location!!

We will be looking for volunteers in the following areas:
  • Liasons between OFG and one of the following groups or agencies:  CNPS, CCC, Master Gardeners, MWD, local cities, and more.  Our liasons will keep groups and agencies with similar goals up to date on OFG events and updates.
  • Blog posters: volunteers to keep our blog updated on local events that are OFG, garden, and water related in San Diego or Southern California.
  • PR and Events: one or two volunteers who can reach out to local papers, agencies, etc. and get info out about upcoming OFG events and who can keep the OFG team posted on upcoming events (garden tours, etc.) where we might want an OFG booth.
  • OFG Booth staffers:  anyone interesting in staffing OFG booths at local garden tours or other green fair events!
If any of these opportunities sounds fun to you or if you have any questions please contact Morgan at morgan@surfridersd.org for more information!

Lawn Patrol and Garden Tour this Sunday!

This weekend we have two events coming up! 

At 10am is our first Encinitas Lawn Patrol!  We will meet at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas at 10am and walk up to our first Encinitas OFG at 3rd and A and from there we will take a quick tour around the neighborhood to check out the neighbors' gardens and rate their ocean friendliness!

From there we will be running up to Oceanside for the Annual Oceanside Native Garden Tour which starts at 2pm at St. Mary's School at 515 Wisconsin Ave in Oceanside.  The tour will go around several blocks in the neighborhood, showcasing native gardens and will be led by local native garden designers and experts.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Lawn Patrol and feel free to follow us to the tour in the afternoon for some native garden action!
