Surfrider South Jersey has been awarded grant money from the Cape May Beach Plum Association to award two partners to build ocean friendly gardens in Cape May County. We will award two $1000 grants to put towards each garden.

An Ocean Friendly Garden promotes conservation, permeability, and retention (CPR) to revive our watersheds and oceans. It mimics nature and provides multiple benefits.

“The Ocean Friendly Gardens program of the Surfrider Foundation South Jersey Chapter encourages local residents to create a garden for their home town. The use of low-maintenance, water-conserving native plants promotes responsible landscaping.  This is an ideal way to show children how to enjoy the outdoors, while sharing the garden with birds and butterflies.”

We will work with the partners to create an Ocean Friendly Garden in a highly visible location. The partners must agree to maintain the garden long-term.
