• Chumash Native Garden Coming to Oxnard Historic Farm Park
    Thursday, February 4, 2016 at

  • A Chumash Native Garden is in the works at the Oxnard Historic Farm Park. The park contains the two oldest structures on the Oxnard Plain. Plans call for the buildings' restoration where they will eventually house a museum about Oxnard history.

    In the meantime, six master gardeners and Michael Glenn with Fish and Wildlife Services are installing native plants used by the Chumash on the property. Spearheading the project is Jeff Maulhardt, a fifth generation of the Maulhardt and Borchard farm families and a director of the park.

    The native grasses will be in the front portion in a 100' x 20' area. Agromin donated 20 yards of mulch to the project and to the park's small avocado and lemon orchards.

    The Chumash native grass area will be completed by the end of March. A kiosk will eventually be added.

    The park is located at 1251 Gottfried Place in Oxnard. For more information, go to http://www.oxnardfarmpark.org/
