Planning to replace your lawn or make your garden more ‘California-friendly’? Garden designers Constance M. Vadheim and Kelley Dawdy have many years of experience helping local gardeners create water-wise, life-friendly and beautiful gardens. This four-day workshop stresses the use of plants and materials appropriate for our California climate and heritage, including native plants. During the workshop, participants are helped to create a design, complete with plant list, for their own New California Garden. To maximize in-class time, students complete a series of exercises prior to the workshop (details provided upon registration).  In-class sessions focus on examples of good design and hands-on design of participant’s gardens.
