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