 Are you considering ROOFTOP SOLAR for your home or business?

Get all of your questions about residential or commercial rooftop solar answered on Saturday, November 7th from 9am to 11am at the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, Debin Hall, 120 Stevens Ave (west on the Lomas Santa Fe exit off of I-5).

 Solar companies, installers, lenders, and City staff will talk with you —in one convenient place—about feasibility, financing, payback and permits. You’ll  be able to collect information and hear short presentations to help you decide if NOW is the time to Go Solar.

 Co-sponsored by Sierra Club San Diego, the City of Solana Beach and the Solana Beach Presbyterian Church.  

 Our goals are to encourage more rooftop solar installations across the county, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, help the City reach its climate action goals and save you money at the same time!

Eagle Rain Dance Ceremony at Fall Festival

Alta Vista Botanical Gardens is proud to host “The Eagle Rain Dance” in the Ceremonial Garden on Saturday October 10 @ 2:00.

Steven Garcia is of the Tongva Native Tribe originally from Catalina Island. His Grandfather raised him to be the bridge for cross cultural and the earth-centric community. He has been guided to “share the energy of the ancestors”. Steven Garcia is the Eagle who leads us into the dance for Rain and Earth Healing along with drummers and sound healers.

This Neo-Traditional interactive performance is our way to share the beautiful energy of the fall season. “Let’s give people a chance to connect to the soil, the need for rain, and the environment, so we can create Peace on Earth.

Many of us are looking to the elders and indigenous cultures to reconnect to the “original instructions”. In the Garden, we are a part of the solution in this fun and creative show. We are being reminded that it is our responsibility to create positive healing energy. We are building the future we want to leave our children.”
says sculptor Lia Strell.

This ceremony is sponsored by “Creative Healing” and brought to Alta Vista Botanical Gardens by Lia Strell with her vision for a healthy, vital and creative future.
