Nancy Goslee Power and Anna Hoffman, Guest Speakers

Please join us as we explore examples of classical California gardens past and present that have been designed to survive in the Mediterranean climate of California.  We will look at several examples of historical gardens that endure and thrive in different parts of the state, as well as several recent projects that take into account principles of water conservation in plant selection.
