MANHATTAN BEACH BOTANICAL GARDEN
The Quiet Garden:  If you’re like many of us, the noise from a leaf blower, weed eater or power lawn mower is one of the most unpleasant sounds you hear outside. Wouldn't it be lovely instead to hear the lyrical notes of a warbler, the delicate trickle of a water fountain or the calming rustle of tree leaves? Although using these mechanical devices gets the job done a little faster, if you or your maintenance person uses the hand held, non-motorized gardening tools, there are tremendous health benefits to be gained. Not to mention the increased appreciation, friendliness and cooperation of your neighbors. The MBBG will demonstrate the proper way to use “Quiet Gardening” tools like brooms, rakes, clippers, shears and shovels. In addition, they’ll reveal the amazing health benefits and calories per minute that can be burned using these time-tested techniques. One more benefit to be gained: Reduced noise pollution!
California native wildflower seed packets will be given away.

backwards beekeepers
Did you know, 40% of your food comes from the work of the honeybee?  We're a group of organic, treatment-free beekeepers in Los Angeles, with branches now forming in other cities.   We're "Backwards" because we rely on observation and natural practices to keep our bees thriving rather than pesticides, chemicals, or treatments of any kind.   Our members are aged 15 yrs to 90 years, and come from all walks of life.  We aim to dispel unfortunate myths about bees and show the fun and fascination of the life of the bee society and the yummy product the bees produce.  With an on-line "bee-rescue network" and monthly educational meetings/mentorings, we're continually growing as more and more people discover the enjoyment and worth of encouraging our native feral bee population. Our goal is to do right by the bees so that the bees can return the favor.


MAHAMUDRA KADAMPA BUDDHIST CENTER
Meditation is at the heart of the Buddhist way of life. It is basically a method for understanding and working on our own mind. We first learn to identify our different negative mental states known as 'delusions', and learn how to develop peaceful and positive mental states or 'virtuous minds'. Then in meditation we overcome our delusions by becoming familiar with virtuous minds. Out of meditation we try to maintain the virtuous minds we have developed and use our wisdom to solve the problems of daily life  .As our mind becomes more positive our actions become more constructive, and our experience of life becomes more satisfying and beneficial to others.

Next up is "oceans, waves and beaches." Think coastlines, we're engaged with environmental issues that affect our coastlines. "Powerful activist network" speaks to how we go about this mission. We are a grassroots organization. We're local in many coastal regions.  We're moms, we're surfers, we're kids and teens... we're you.
