SUMMER 2017

GNN classes will be on hiatus until OCTOBER 2017

As the weather in California heats up for Summer, native plants (and our nursery) like to take a brief rest. The long, hot and dry days can be very hard on young plants so this is also not the best season to adding new plants to your garden. Take this time to plan what you would like to be planting in the fall or better yet take this time to kill your lawn! Please register here.

Check back in October for the reopening of the nursery and new classes that will be offered during the planting season.
