Green Thumbs Up
More than 100 supporters of the planned San Diego Water Conservation Garden and Learning Center applauded in appreciation as a beautiful Bronze Leaf award was presented to Reclamation's representative, Meena Westford (Southern California Area Water Conservation Coordinator). The ceremony in El Cajon last fall recognized Reclamation's support for the project.
The San Diego Water Conservation Garden and Learning Center will occupy 4.2 acres on the campus of Cuyamaca College in El Cajon, adjacent to the Heritage of the Americas Museum. The Garden's design, by Densen, Powell & Atelier, Inc., has already won numerous awards for effectively communicating the value of water conservation techniques in landscaping.RECLAMATION'S EDIBLE GARDEN
Reclamation is sponsoring an exhibit called the Edible Garden, featuring beautiful plants that require little water and can be eaten either in whole or in part. All education and outreach activities which emanate from the Edible Garden will bear the name of the Bureau of Reclamation as its official sponsor.
other exhibits and demonstration gardens will make up the $3,000,000
facility, which is being funded in large measure through gifts of
products and services from members of the green industry as well as
cash contributions from businesses, foundations, and individuals.
