Making Laguna More Livable & Sustainable
We believe that we can improve upon past ways of living that were environmentally disconnected and taxing, and create new ways of living that are significantly more connected, more vibrant, and more fulfilling.
We help protect the following environments in Laguna Beach: Livability, Gardens & Farms, Land & Ocean, and City Repair.
Because Laguna Beach Village is nestled between two protected wild natural environments; a 22,000-acre greenbelt buffer behind us, and a 10-square-mile State Marine Preserve Bluebelt to the sea, with Orange County’s only natural lake, Barbara’s Lake, a short walk up Laguna Canyon.
