No Plants! Hardscape Materials & Techniques with Andreas Hessing
Saturday, August 9, 2014 from 1:30 PM to 3:30 PM (PDT)
Sun Valley, CA
How do you build the bones of a garden? This class surveys standard and alternative building techniques and materials for walls, walks, fences and seats – and shows many innovative examples of hardscape. Andreas is an artist, landscape designer and licensed contractor (scrubjaystudios.com). For more than 20 years, his site-specific installations have celebrated regional biodiversity while focusing on the philosophical, political and social implications of California’s indigenous flora.
The Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers and Native Plants, Inc., established 1960, is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the understanding, preservation and use of California native flora. The Foundation preserves the legacy and carries on the work of Theodore Payne, a pioneering Los Angeles nurseryman, horticulturist and conservationist widely considered to be the father of the native plant movement in California.
We are located on 22 acres of canyon land in the northeast corner of the San Fernando Valley.
