Project Description

In the summer of 2015, the Sonoma County Water Agency contracted Daily Acts and Conservation Corps North Bay to execute an eight-week Youth Ecology Corps pilot program to replace lawns in the cities of Rohnert Park and Cotati including the installation of three model sites.

One of the model site installations involved transforming the front lawn Saint Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church in Rohnert Park from green lawn to a beautiful, drought-tolerant landscape. The scope included design, planting, and drip irrigation installation.

Daily Acts served as Project Manager and was responsible for training the crew, interfacing with staff from the cities of Rohnert Park and Cotati, performing site assessments, ordering materials, managing landscape design professionals, providing general oversight, quality control, photography, media coordination, and reporting.
