California Native Plant Gardening Basics – free online education

March 18 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm PDT

Join the Santa Monica Mountains Fund for an educational 2-hour tour of California native plants and how to grow them in your landscapes! The lecture will introduce the student to 15 basic native plant landscaping tips and techniques along with 15 commonly used native plants that even the worst gardener will have a hard time killing! The powerpoint presentation will also cover basic irrigation, maintenance and horticultural techniques. Excellent for the beginning and intermediate gardener or landscaper (and it’s free so it’s not a waste of money!).

The class will be led by Antonio Sanchez, nursery manager and restoration volunteer coordinator for the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area. Antonio has over 15 years experience growing and killing native plants in nurseries and landscapes, and led the nursery at California Botanic Garden in Claremont and was co-owner of Nopalito Native Plant Nursery in Ventura. In his spare time he enjoys listening to the native plant band Sage Against the Machine on Instagram.
