On Saturday, Sept. 8, the Sacramento Chapter of the California Native Plant Society will host a daylong workshop on planting a native garden. Held at the Effie Yeaw Nature Center, the event will provide information on changing water-needy lawns to less thirsty California native plants.
“Our workshop will educate and assist you in transitioning a water-thirsty landscape into a beautiful, water-wise garden that is uniquely Californian and filled with a diversity of habitats for wildlife and beneficial insects,” says Betsy Weiland, one of the workshop organizers.
The workshop will be led by local water-wise landscape and native plant experts, and will include an organic lunch and a nature walk. Cooler fall weather is right around the corner, and this workshop is just in time for fall planting.
Topics will include how to tear out the old lawn, planning ways to simplify your gardening life, a show of California native plants and their care and maintenance, a pruning demonstration and the title topic, bringing nature home.
