Eco-friendly inside and outside

Southern California Gas Company eco-friendly garden

Right next to busy Firestone Blvd, there's going to be an oasis of eco-friendly green in a few months. The Southern California Gas Company is converting the area in front of its Energy Resource Center to a garden that will showcase a variety of native plants. In addition to the sprinklers being installed here, a rain catcher will capture rain water to use for irrigation.

According to Downey Beat, the garden "... will feature eight types of gardens – fire resistant plants, coastal flowers, sage and chaparral, native ground cover, Mediterranean, riparian meadows, oak woodland understory and edible – complete with paths for visitor access."
