Ten years ago, the corner of Eagle Rock Way and South Coast Highway was a blight – unkempt and unused.
On Saturday, it was the joyous setting for a garden party – in spades.
Alani & the Giant Kelp Elf
Now available through Laguna Wilderness Press, the “Alani & the Giant Kelp Elf” book by Gayle and Tom Joliet is the story of Kelfie and his Kelp Elf. Their undersea home, the giant kelp forest off the coast of Laguna Beach, is being destroyed by over-fishing and pollution.
The South Laguna Community Garden is the location and the impetus for this children’s book, and Kelfie, the main character, is alive and in person at the Garden Park.
