The Problem

We wish to demonstrate to our community that drought tolerant landscaping is beautiful. People do not have to choose between artificial turf or rocks and cacti. Drought tolerant landscaping in Southern California can include lush gardens of native plants that enhance homes while attracting native insects, birds and other wildlife.

Our Plan

The Horace Mann Horticulture Club will develop educational materials and plant demonstration mini-gardens in pots to take to the Beverly Hills Farmers Market Earth Day celebration, PTA sponsored events, open house and the LA Environmental Education Fair. We also hope to develop a website to increase the number of people we are able to educate about our campaign...Drought tolerant is beautiful!
