Help Make These Hills come Alive!

The Idea

Harbor Hills has a community garden that needs restoration. It could benefit from fruit trees planted around perimeter, restoration of the soil, use of compost and mulch, and CA Natives for habitat. Water can be captured by diverting drainage ditches and from roof tops.

Your Team

The team for this project includes UC Master Gardeners, staff at Harbor Hills, and the residents at Harbor Hills.

The Community

The residents will take ownership of this garden as they see it transform into something beautiful as they work in it.

The Need

Residents include families, seniors, and people with disabilites. They are provided with affordable housing and assisted with tools and skills in order to become self-sufficient.

Location

Harbor Hills Housing Community, 26607 S. Western Ave. Lomita, CA

Timing

The goal of this project is for it be to planted from Fall 2012 through Spring 2013.

Great potential! The site is well designed, just needs a little TLC to bring it back to what was originally intended.
