Altadena Library Presents Gardening with California Natives with Maureen Taylor

Join Altadena Library as instructor Maureen Taylor gives an overview workshop of California native plant horticulture, for beginners. Saturday, November 12 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Learn why native plants are important and how to successfully grow them in your garden. Class topics will include plant selection, planting techniques, establishment, and irrigation. The second portion of the class will be held outdoors with a hands-on planting demonstration. Please wear closed-toed shoes, and bring a shovel and watering can if you have them. Everyone is invited to this free event.

Maureen received her BA in Environmental Studies/Biology from UC Santa Cruz. After graduating she was hired by the Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants, which expanded her love for nature into the realm of gardening. Maureen now operates her own landscape maintenance business for clients with mostly native gardens. She recently became a UC Master Gardener Volunteer in order to learn about growing food. In her free time, Maureen enjoys making art inspired by nature.
