California Native Gardens through the Years 

February 20, 2013
7:00 – 8:30 pm
Stephanie Morris will lead us on a journey, showing photos of California native plant gardens from the beginning stages of planting to fully established gardens. What happens through the years, both the expected and the unexpected? What can we learn from mature gardens that may apply to the design of new gardens? Stephanie has been working in the field of Landscape Architecture for seventeen years and specializes in ecologically-oriented residential design.
