Insecticide cited in declining bee population no longer sprayed on city property Encinitas will pilot a pesticide-free park at the request of residents who have health and environmental concerns. The Encinitas City Council last week directed staff to bring back a fleshed-out plan for maintaining one of the city’s 19 parks sans pesticides. If the council deems the test program successful, the initiative could move to more or even all city parks. On a related note, Encinitas Parks and Recreation staff announced the department last September banned neonicotinoid insecticides on city property. Studies have implicated neonicotinoids — commonly sprayed on trees, shrubs and lawns — in the national bee die-off. The Bee Informed Partnership, made up of universities and laboratories, stated aroun...

  How to Sell Your Encinitas Home for the Most Money!I think many homeowners in the past thought to make the most money selling your home was to do it By Owner themselves.  Today, we know that's not the case and many homeowners now bypass the for sale by owner route.When the internet came to us, it opened up a whole lot of uncertainty of how or what and why.  Real estate companies started using the internet as an advertising medium because many of the younger real estate buyers were using the web to search and research for their next home.    Then companies like Zillow and Trulia launched their platforms to assist buyers in a one place for all home information and they gained a foothold. But the information was inaccurate about 1/3 of the time or out dated (the home was already sold) wi...

ArtFest 2015 at the San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas CA Artfest 2015 at the San Diego Botanic Garden was a rousing success, at least from my perspective.  This 2-day art festival/fair was held this past weekend at the beautiful San Diego Botanic Garden in Encinitas.  We visited for several hours and thoroughly the wide range of art vendors (including a few pottery purchases), the Bonsai and Ikebana exhibits, and of course these gorgeous gardens we are so blessed to have preserved along our coast. Enjoy the festival and the gardens in the slideshow below. San Diego Botanic Garden 230 Quail Gardens DriveEncinitas, CA  92024(760) 436-3036Open Daily (except Christmas) 9 - 5
