Demonstration & Planting with Native & Drought Tolerant Plants Presented by BAWSCA

Have you been thinking you would like to replace your lawn but find yourself with more questions about plants than answers? Here is a chance to learn. Bay Area Water Supply and Conservation Agency (BAWSCA) is hosting a free class to learn more about replacing lawns with drought tolerant plants. Join them on Saturday, November 7, 2015 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Guadalupe River Park and Garden. Make sure you get your free ticket by following this link to Eventbrite. Here's what BAWSCA has to say about their event: 
Come and join Dee Wong to learn and gain practical experience on the secrets of how to successfully select and install native and low water use plants in our demonstration garden in San Jose. Horticulturist and speaker Dee Wong draws from her work field experiences from failing plants, and why they fail due to poor plant selection, poor planting and horticultural practices.

TOMORROW: Holiday tree orders due
