Tuesday, June 21st was the longest day of the year, and SLO Solstice’s event made it extra-extraordinary. Hosted by Sunset Honda and REC Solar, Solstice held their annual Green Mixer at Sage Eco Gardens in Los Osos. Our own Maggie Ragatz represented the SLO Botanical Garden at a booth at the mini-expo, promoting the Botanical Garden’s fundraiser raffle whose list of prizes includes world-class meals prepared by local chefs in your homes, a pair of brand-new kayaks, and even a trip to South Africa (to look at all the Mediterranean plants, of course!).
Solstice supports a different community organization each year, and this year’s beneficiary was Woods Humane Society. Food and drink were provided, including Joy Cup, Be Love Cafe, Central Coast Brewing, and more. Two-person band “Acoustico” graced the stage and provided the perfect accompaniment to the backdrop of Sage’s incredible nursery. A first-rate sunset (yes, even in Los Osos!), distinctive plants, and Green folks all around–the Summer Solstice was heralded by a stellar event.Tags: drought tolerant, ecological, Gardens by Gabriel, Landscape, landscaping, Organic, San Luis Obispo
