This class was a wonderful class with an inspiring drive to learn about sustainability in the garden and beyond. It definitely energized my mission to be with you during this class.

David can be found at the Learning Garden, at SLOLA,, and online at Beautiful Food, LA Garden and the Learning Garden Almost Daily. SLOLA meets at the Learning Garden on the third Saturday of every month except in December and all of you are welcome to attend. Although you have given him your email address, you have not been added to any of his many email lists - you must ask to be on the lists. Upcoming at The Learning Garden will be the annual Pesto Day - September 22, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM - for a mere ten bucks you get pasta with fresh pesto from the Garden, an Italian salad, Italian sausage and Italian bread and lemonade served with an Italian accent.
Orchid can be found at the monthly meetings of CNPS-SGM at Eaton Canyon (CNPS evening program meetings are free to the public, as are many CNPS hikes), on the interwebs at Native Sanctuary, and at every native plant sale this fall (TPF, RSABG, CNPS-SGM). She will be lecturing September 20 and giving a tour of a native garden October 4 for the Arboretum, as well as speaking at the symposium At Home with Natives 2012: Solutions for Nature-Friendly Landscaping, Saturday, October 13, at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo. This lecture will reprise the "water" powerpoint of our class for those who missed it, along with some irrigation thoughts. All three events have a charge.
