California Natives – Drought Tolerant Gardens

California-poppy-Escholzia-californica_2Do you know that 90% of leaf-eating insects, including caterpillars that turn into beautiful butterflies, only can eat California Native plants?

Most of the plants around are drought tolerant or adaptable to California climate but they are from Australia, Africa, China, etc and they don’t provide food for the beneficial insects. Let’s save water, money and bring back butterflies into our garden by incorporating California Native plants into your garden.

The workshop will discuss the basics of gardening with California flora including a short history, benefits (including healing and culinary property) and the ecological impact to the environment and your pocket for the long-term. We will provide an in-depth hand-out,and resources such as nurseries, landscape designers, classes and hands-on plant samples. Let’s turn the drought into an opportunity for positive change that we can do by creating a sustainable garden at our own home!

Saturday, June 7 at 1:30 pm at the Culver City Teen Center, 4153 Overland Ave. Culver City 90230

Workshop hosted by Weina Dinata of PoppyandFinch.com
