What We've Been Up To
September 17-- Ventura County CCL Presents: Native Plant and Drought-Tolerant Talk by California Naturalist Laura Pasetta
CCL members enjoyed a beautiful morning at the California True Colors Gardening and Learning Center in Thousand Oaks with Laura Pasetta, of Wild-Rootz. Laura spoke about our local climate and how to incorporate more native plants in our gardens, helping to balance our micro-climate, promote our pollinators, and be more water-wise. Thank you, Laura for such a fun and informative session!

August Monthly Meeting
Our chapter held its first interview for the 2022 midterms with Claudia Bill-de la Peña, a candidate for the Ventura County District 2 Board of Supervisors. The candidate identified her top three climate action goals to be implementation of building and vehicle electrification, microgrids for enhanced community resilience, and gray water systems for water reuse/conservation. Her additional platform positions include women’s rights, community safety, affordable housing, mental health services and alleviating homelessness. You can learn more by clicking here.
