Go Native: Landscaping Sustainably with Native Plants for Birds and Butterflies

Dealing with Drought
Beginning Saturday, November 3, 1-3PM, and offered the First Saturday of each month through February!

at the Back to Natives Nursery
Join Reginald Durant from Back to Natives to learn all about locally native, landscape quality plants that can help conserve water, eliminate the need for pesticides and fertilizers, and provide habitat for butterflies and birds. Humans have been living alongside Southern California’s native plants for centuries. Toyon was the first Hollywood celebrity with the native Tongva people, and Beach Evening Primrose basked on sun warmed sand dunes long before the first surfer caught their first wave. The presentation will include pictures of native ecosystems and the native plants that flourish in Southern California. “Fifty percent or more of the water we use daily goes on lawns and outdoor landscaping,” said Back to Natives Executive Director Reginald Durant. “Planting natives is one of the best ways for homeowners and businesses to help solve the crisis brought on by one of California’s worst droughts, that is not over yet.”
“We’ve found that Natives do not thrive with wasteful overhead watering,” said Durant, “They do best with micro irrigation which focuses water to the base of each plant, and can be adjusted to the needs of each plant, saving substantial amounts of water.”
Join us for a timely workshop focusing on our favorite plants to use to save the maximum amount of water while providing the maximum amount of habitat for birds and butterflies, and a beautiful, low maintenance landscape. Reginald designed and installed the landscape design for the first Platinum LEED home in Orange County, as well as for the first home in OC to earn the Build It Green, GreenPoint Rated designation, and many other beautiful, locally native gardens since. Working with Lori Whalen, our volunteer Designer, Reginald has installed numerous landscapes featured in several local native plant tours and home and garden tours in select areas of Southern California.

Learning Objectives (3):
1. Participants will learn why and how to select native plants appropriate for their geographic region.
A plant native to California is not necessarily appropriate for any/all location(s) within the state.
2. Participants will learn the benefits of and best practices for designing with locally native plants.
3. Participants will learn which method of irrigation is most beneficial for native plants, resulting in healthy specimens while requiring the least amount of water.

Back to Natives has been working at a breakneck pace to grow native plants to supply the demand! Hope you can join us. $5 reserves your spot. Register below.
