Local School’s New Ocean Friendly Demonstration Garden Is a Living Lab

Redondo Union High School has a new water and energy-saving, ocean friendly demonstration garden on its campus, less than a half mile from the Pacific Ocean, thanks to the garden’s sponsor, West Basin Municipal Water District.

The water district coordinated with the California Water Service Company, Redondo Beach Unified School District, Redondo Union High School, and Surfrider Foundation to develop the garden as a community educational site adhering to the foundation’s ocean friendly garden principles to conserve water and reduce runoff.
