Low Impact Design Workday

January 30, 2015 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Come spend Friday, January 30th, creating beautiful landscapes with plants native to the Sonoma Valley.

Along with providing a model for sustainable agriculture, Sonoma Garden Park is also a template for resource conservation in the Sonoma Valley. In a recent collaboration with local professionals, Sonoma Ecology Center has undertaken an endeavor to conserve water at Sonoma Garden Park by installing two new rain water catchment tanks. As part of the water conservation initiatives at the park, Sonoma Ecology Center is landscaping the entrance of Sonoma Garden Park with water-wise native plants and needs your help to put these plants in the ground!

All ages and skill levels are welcome. Children 12 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Volunteers will be getting dirty, so please dress appropriately. Wear sturdy shoes and bring gloves, a snack, and a refillable water bottle.

Volunteers will meet at 9:00 a.m. in front of the Straw Bale Barn next to the Parking Lot of Sonoma Garden Park. Sonoma Garden Park is located on the outskirts of the city of Sonoma at 19996 Seventh Street East between Denmark Street and East MacArthur Street.

For any questions regarding the workday at Sonoma Garden Park, contact Mike Zigler at 707-996-0712 x102 or mike@sonomaecologycenter.org.
