Why We Do It

Kelp forest
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. A truly rare jewel within OC’s urban sprawl.

With the threat of peak oil, global warming, deforestation, polluted water supplies and droughts, now it is more important than ever to protect our precious natural resources and strive to help Laguna Beach become self-sufficient in the face of these potential risks. By doing things like growing our own food, harvesting rain water, caring for our open space, being responsible with our waste, and using green practices in our building, we can ensure that Laguna Beach will have a strong and vibrant future for its residents and visitors.
