On March 8, our club hosted a table overflowing with succulent cuttings at Laguna Beach’s second annual Arbor Day Celebration at Main Beach. We gave away scores of drought-tolerant cuttings to the public – thanks to generous members who donated them from their gardens. A dozen volunteers took turns manning the table from 3 pm – 5 pm and gave succulent gardening advice, along with the complimentary cuttings.
And, here’s a little-known fact: Our club helps fund and maintain the “Garden By the Sea” at Main Beach. We recently donated $500 toward the creation of a pollinator garden there in time for Arbor Day – with the invaluable support of Ruben Flores, owner of Laguna Nursery.
The Arbor Day Celebration was a beautiful afternoon by the ocean, with 10 local groups hosting informative and interactive tables. The festivities included:
- A tree planting ceremony
- Fun activities for kids
- Live music!
Since 2018, the Arbor Day Foundation has recognized Laguna Beach as a “Tree City USA” for its excellence in urban forestry management. So, the city is bound to continue its annual Arbor Day Celebration, and we’re delighted to participate! — Linda Homscheid
