OFG Sites in Ventura County

We welcome partnerships with government, non-profit organizations, landscape professionals, businesses and schools to reduce runoff and create landscapes that store rainwater.

There are several Ocean Friendly Garden sites in Ventura County.

City of Ventura

Loma Vista School, 300 Lynn Drive, Ventura, CA

Surfrider OFG volunteers recently completed a project at Loma Vista School, in partnership with the Midtown Ventura Community Council, teachers, students and parents, along with the City of Ventura to create a California Coastal Native garden with rain water catchment areas, benches, and pathways.

The Midtown Ventura Community Council led the charge in designing, removing 80 feet of blacktop and building the sprawling garden that included two large bio-swales (dry creek beds) to keep rainwater out of the storm drains. More info here at Will Rogers Elementary School.Bioswale in action
