Drought is normal for Southern California, but many of our public and commercial spaces are landscaped with water-thirsty plants.
To help create more climate resilient landscapes, South Pasadena Beautiful is launching an initiative to create a new sustainable low-water garden at the South Pasadena Post Office. The project will unfold in two phases, dying trees and grass in front of the building will be replaced with disease-resistant shade trees and colorful, California-friendly planting. The second phase will renovate the large lawn area to the side of the building with a new seating area and low-water plants and trees selected for their ability to attract birds and butterflies.
SPB is seeking to raise $35,000 for this project. Monetary donations from the community and volunteering on special planting days will help us realize this project together, for the benefit of the city.
