Wildly successful, the California Green School Summit is a MUST ATTEND for California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger who stopped by to tour the exhibit floor on Wednesday.

“The Governor took particular interest in the Green Auto Mall.”  said ASGi – the Association of Synthetic Turf Installers, Executive Director, Annie Costa.  ” I think it’s great that he comes to visit the floor of the Green Technologies show – it really makes an impression when our leaders endorse growing trends, by their interests and attendance to events, such as this.”

Several years ago, the Governor’s Director of Special Projects, Jane Imperato, under the request of the First Lady, Maria Shriver, embarked upon efforts to upgrade the look and feel of the offices and installed 2200 square feet of artificial grass (synthetic turf) in a light well used by the governor and his staff – often known for it’s main visual asset – the “Smoking Tent”.

Used less for a casual smoke and more as a “smoke screen” so that he can have privacy while enjoying the outdoors with guests and executive staff – the beautiful outdoor garden that Ms. Shriver and her staff created is keep ready for the use of non-profit groups and staff, alike.

‘It’s cooler, cleaner and quieter out there’,  he told me shortly after my company, TuFFGrass,  installed it”, said the TuffGrass founder.  “He really sees the value in the use of artificial grass for his own office outdoor patio and for more practical uses, as landscape and sports fields, as well.  We installed several areas of synthetic turf at his home in Brentwood, California where gardeners just couldn’t get natural grasses to thrive.”
