Gardening Lecture by Erin Johnson
January 22, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This two-part lecture is part of a collaboration with the Theodore Payne Foundation.
Part 1: The Power of Plants: Growing a Sustainable Future
Part 2: Right Plant, Right Place
Instructor: Erin Johnson
This lecture illustrates the beauty and ecological benefits of California’s native wildflowers and plants. Discover the diversity of California’s native flora and how its use in urban landscapes reduces pesticides, conserves water, and transforms sterile spaces into thriving habitats that support birds, butterflies, pollinators, and the well-being of all our communities.
Knowing native habitats can help you choose the right plants for your place. This course discusses local plant communities and their conditions, as well as how to assess the conditions of your garden site, including climate, soil, sunlight and space. A valuable class for beginners and the prerequisite for Theodore Payne Foundation’s Three-Part Native Garden Design Course.
