Our mission is to promote sustainable beautification of the City of Solana Beach, in both public and private spaces. We sponsor hands-on gardening projects throughout our community
Although our regular meetings became irregular during the past year, due to Covid-19 restrictions, our garden tending and special projects continue.

Where & When
Let's hoe together again!
One of our members has generously offered his lovely garden for an in-person meeting at 4 p.m. on October 9, 2021. Watch your email for details, SeaWeeders!
And bring your trowels, as we are invited to divide his prolific "Frequent Flier" iris, as well as Pentas that we can relocate to our community gardens.
Monarchs Count in Solana Beach
Thanks to all who logged and shared their monarch butterfly sitings earlier this summer during national pollinator week, June 21-27. Your observations ranged from detailed spreadsheets to charming admissions that “I see them every day, too many to count!.” Our first city-wide count has been shared with the San Diego Pollinator Alliance.
Join us October 24 for Dia de los Muertos
Volunteers needed for our booth at the annual fiesta in La Colonia Park. This illustration is from a wonderful children's book we plan to make available. Titled Monarch Butterflies, it tells the life journey of "one of the winged wonders of the world," and the challenges they face to continue. Author Ann Hobbie is a 20-year classroom teacher and chair of the board at Monarch Joint Venture, a national partnership of groups working to conserve pollinator habitat and the monarch migration.
