Apricot Lane Farms (ALF), in Moorpark, CA, is a bio-dynamic farm at the cutting edge of progressive agriculture. Located near the central hub of the farm, a leaking, anaerobic, and stagnant pond lined with an impenetrable ring of tule reeds was seen as a missed opportunity by farm personnel. ALF envisioned the pond as the heart of farm, providing habitat for native pollinators for the surrounding production acreage. Enter RMLA and David Magney Environmental Consulting.
The design and management team oversaw the complete transformation of the pond to a body of water teeming with life and vitality, and surrounded its shores with Ventura County's largest native garden. For more information, read here.
