Reata Cleanup Day

50 people worked at the Goin’ Native Therapeutic Garden’s cleanup event at Reata Park on Saturday, April 17, 2021.


There were a few different groups that joined us, including 1-11 Marines, the high schoolers from the Interact program, San Juan Garden Club, San Juan Capistrano Rotary, and our Goin’ Native Garden Angels.


Larry and Chris Kramer, the former San Juan Capistrano Mayor and First Lady, also came out to the garden to help register people. The Santa Margarita Water District provided water for the day.


SJC Rotarian Joe Soto of Soto Landscaping was generous enough to donate woodchip services that allowed us to transform the excess into mulch, which we put back into the garden beds.


Everyone was fed a boxed lunch. It was truly a remarkable way to commemorate our new contract at Reata Park and kick off Earth Day!
