Fifteen volunteers, some coming from Santa Barbara and Camarillo, sweated through 97-degree heat Saturday to remove trash, irrigation hoses and chemicals from a marijuana grow site off Santa Ana Road near Lake Casitas.
Approximately 2,000 plants grown under a canopy of native chamise, had been hauled out and destroyed by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department last year. Though the growers were arrested, the camp remained.
