Mulch and signage in the Native American Garden

The first signs are up in the woodland section of the Native American Garden. Many of the plants were used by local Chumash and Tongva for food, medicine and other uses. We'll have more professional signs soon. Meanwhile, 3rd and 4th graders and everyone who walks by the garden can see what the plants are!

Also, note the mulch that covers the ground. This Xerimulch was donated by Kellogg's Garden Products.  Mulch has two purposes: it reduces the need for frequent watering because it helps retain moisture underneath; it also slows weed growth.
