Event description

Description

This class is part of the series Building Resilience with Native Plants, cosponsored by Theodore Payne Foundation and LA Metro. Classes will be held at LA Metro Headquarters (not at TPF).

Nearly 30% of all Metro water use is related to landscaping. In response, Metro stations and landscaping designs are utilizing drought-tolerant California native plants to reduce the need for irrigation while maintaining regional biodiversity. This series:
1)
Teaches how we select these plants
2) Increases awareness about challenges and opportunities related to the use of native plants

About the class Right Plant, Your Place
A successful garden depends on careful planning. Learn how to assess the conditions of your site, including climate, soil, sunlight, and space. We will discuss the irrigation needs of native plants, including how to get them through their establishment period. Explore some examples of Metro efforts in planting natives and generate ideas for next steps. Lili Singer is Director of Special Projects and Adult Educatiion at the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants in Sun Valley, CA.
