Dear Olivenhain Neighbors,
Workshop to discuss landscape improvements that can reduce water use and protect homes from wildfires
Olivenhain Municipal Water District and Encinitas Fire Department invite the public to attend a free online workshop on October 13 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The workshop will cover how to landscape homes and businesses in a way that protects them from fire damage and improves water efficiency.
The workshop will feature representatives from Encinitas Fire and OMWD as well as a presentation by Greg Rubin, a San Diego area native plant expert and author with extensive firewise landscaping experience. Rubin designed and installed the fire demonstration garden at Rancho Santa Fe Fire Protection District’s fire station in Elfin Forest. Topics to be discussed during the workshop include landscape zones, irrigation, and plant selection.
In addition to providing fire protection benefits, firewise landscapes can feature climate-appropriate plants and plants native to Southern California that require significantly less water for irrigation than traditional turf-heavy landscapes.

Olivenhain is a unique and history rich community. We are fortunate to have the Meeting Hall and grounds for our community events. The colonists had the foresight to set this area aside for the community. If only they know, it would remain the social gathering place in Olivenhain for more than 120 years. The Olivenhain Town Council now manages the grounds and buildings, but in the spirit of the colonists, it belongs to you, the community. When you join the Olivenhain Town Council, it isn’t just a membership; you are helping to preserve and perpetuate our unique heritage. Thank you for your membership and please tell a neighbor and encourage them to also join the Olivenhain Town Council. That can be done on the OTC website: www.olivenhain.org/membership
