Michael Rasmusson, the MAD Manager for the Miramar Ranch North, will describe changes that are transitioning our local public landscaping from a full maintenance landscape to a low-water, sustainable landscape. These changes include
- the new, true Butterfly Park at the Scripps Ranch Community Center
- a Dry Creek, fire-resistant demonstration garden
- the Oak Glen Native Garden
Rebecca Hays, an Environmental Specialist with the City of San Diego, will explain the principles and practice of Zero Waste, which calls for handling discarded materials as resources rather than waste. Zero Waste programs aim to conserve these resources through waste prevention, recycling, composting, and other technologies.
The City of San Diego's Environmental Services Department (ESD) is making great strides on the path towards a Zero Waste Objective of 75% diversion of waste from landfills by 2020 and Zero Waste by 2040. We'll learn how we can contribute, now and in the future.
