Project: Growing Works Native Plants

Description: The project would expand on a pilot native plant nursery and job training concept on a 10-acre site near the Casa Pacifica children and families center and California State University at Channel Island under a ten year lease from the County of Ventura, including a 6000-sq. ft. building. It would create growing grounds for plant propagation of native drought tolerant landscape and restoration species, including rainwater harvesting, irrigation design using reclaimed water, solar panels, and a demonstration garden for public information interpreting local native ecoystems and education on desirable drought-tolerant plants for home and institutional landscapes. The project plans to eventually provide appropriate plant materials for restoration projects, and home, institutional, and commercial landscapes.
