Theodore Payne Fdn: Wild Suburbia – Learning to Garden with Native Plants

Oct 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$25 – $35
Wild Suburbia, Learning to garden with native plants

Barbara Eisenstein will discuss the process of transforming a traditional, high water-use yard into a peaceful habitat garden abounding with native plants and wildlife. Because there are so many variables in gardening, answers to even simple questions about establishing a native plant garden are rife with caveats and exceptions. Barbara will present some of these variables so that gardeners will be better able to select the best practices for their own conditions. Those attending will be encouraged to share their thoughts and experiences on horticultural practices that worked, along with those that did not.

Barbara Eisenstein, a South Pasadena resident, is a research associate and former horticultural outreach coordinator at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden in Claremont, California. She is the plant sale chair for the San Gabriel Mountains Chapter of the California Native Plant Society, and founder and head of Friends of South Pasadena Nature Park.
