The Manhattan Beach adoption lawyers of the Law Offices of Baden V. Mansfield have learned that the Manhattan Beach city council has endorsed a project to develop a sustainable garden outside of a post office at 15th Street and Valley Drive.
The project will cost approximately $20,000 and will include adding deer grass to the area as well as coffee berries. A new water system will cut the city’s water costs of the garden by 70 percent. City officials hope that the development of this garden will motivate people living in Manhattan Beach to build their own sustainable gardens at their homes.
Criticism of the new project has arisen and is directed towards the demolition of two 30-year-old trees. These trees will have to be removed in order for the garden to be constructed. An arborist for the city has said that one of the trees has already died and the other is infected with disease. Also, no city money will be used for the garden.
