*Successfully plant and maintain native gardens.

There will be five sequential sessions including both general and concurrent breakout sessions. Check-in begins at 8:15 a.m. Limited free parking. Lunch will be served at 12:30p.m.

The keynote speaker, Greg Rubin, CEO of California’s Own Native Landscape Design, Inc., will be delivering a comprehensive talk on native plant installation. Greg, a local expert on native gardens, is the coauthor of two well-received native gardening books, with a third book in the works.

Mike Evans, President of Tree of Life Nursery, will present a session entitled “Ugly Is Not a Turf Replacement”-How to build native gardens we can enjoy being in, rather than collections of drought tolerant plants we can only look at.
