Whether you are new to native gardening or a seasoned veteran, join us each month to learn about native plants and how to use them in your home landscapes.
NEW! Sign up for the full year (10 sessions).
Each session includes group discussions and plenty of time for questions.
Our Native Gardeners Club is led by Environmental Educators and avid native gardeners, Eileen Davis and Jan Ward.
