Want to have a positive impact on the ocean? Start in your yard! By employing the techniques of Surfrider’s Ocean Friendly Gardens Program you can reduce the amount of wasteful runoff and harmful pesticides entering our waterways.
Ocean Friendly Gardens promotes conservation, permeability, and retention (CPR) to revive our watersheds and oceans. It mimics nature and provides multiple benefits.
Want to learn more or get involved in planting projects? Email Bill, our Ocean Friendly Garden Coordinator at email@example.com. Bill has created Ocean Friendly Gardens at his own home along the Tuckahoe River. Each garden and rain barrel helps to get the water into the ground, to be naturally filtered and slowed, and not run directly into the river.
