SELVA International, October 8, 2017



SELVA International, a Venice-based environmental non-profit, has partnered with conservation biologist and landscape contractor Steven Williams to offer EcoGardens, a sustainable landscape service to help you convert your water thirsty lawn to an ecological garden.

Learn how your garden can:
• Conserve water

• Save money
• Grow native plants to attract birds and butterflies
• Reduce polluted runoff to our beaches
• Collect and use rainwater
• Support our local community


Selva EcoGardens is pleased to announce that they have recently been awarded another Community Partnership grant from LADWP, and will be offering five FREE Hands On Workshops, which will teach residents how to remove turf and install California Friendly Landscapes in their yards.  Learn by Doing!  If interested in attending a free workshop, sign up at their table!

At the Green Tent, SELVA International will display before and after pictures of sustainable, "Ocean Friendly Gardens." They'll have informational handouts on SELVA's EcoGardens program and Surfrider's Ocean Friendly Gardens program. They'll have some CA native plants local to our area. They will also be distributing free LADWP water-saving devices (low-flow shower heads, sink aerators, and more!) Get your questions answered and free advice on ecological landscaping!
