Sponsor: UC Marin Master Gardeners

Program: We’ll discuss the beauty and benefits of growing natives as well as which ones to grow and how to care for them. Join the growing movement to bring California’s iconic landscape into your own backyard.
Native plants offer beauty and numerous environmental benefits. Along with the arrival of our winter rains comes the perfect time to plant native plants – those that occur naturally and were growing here before settlers arrived. There are 8,000 native plants in California, many found nowhere else in the world. Of these, over 1,000 are native to Marin. Encourage sustainability. Native plants are a key component of a sustainable, Earth-friendly garden.

This is an in-person event at the Fairfax Library. Talks typically run 45 to 60 minutes, with time for questions and answers.

Speaker: Marie Narlock has been a UC Marin Master Gardener since 2004. She studied landscape design through the UC Berkeley Extension and Merritt College, and completed sustainable landscape classes at Sonoma State. She writes articles for the Marin IJ and is editor of the Leaflet, the UC Marin Master Gardener e-newsletter. Marie has designed demonstration gardens for the Marin County fair over the years and she co-designed and managed the Marin Ventures garden that serves developmentally disabled adults.
