Native Gardens Design & Care
The Ecology Center
37201 Alipaz, San Juan Capistrano, CA, US
Learn how to cultivate an abundant, low maintenance and drought tolerant native garden!
Native gardens are more than beautiful additions to your space. Native plants save water, reduce waste and pollution, require less care, provide habitat for beneficial insects and wildlife, support local ecology, and more. Cultivating your own native garden creates benefits for yourself, your community, and the environment.
On average, a native garden uses 80% less water, generates 55% less green waste, and requires 70% less maintenance than a traditional garden. The savings from these resources can be reinvested in other regenerative and sustainable home elements, like food producing raised beds, fruit trees, and culinary herb gardens.
Join us for an outdoor workshop. Together we will:
Learn how to design a native garden for your home
Learn how to start, establish, and maintain a native garden
Explore plant choices, site preparation, lawn remediation where appropriate, soil, earthworks, irrigation, mulching, seasonal care and more
All attendees will receive educational hand-outs to complement the subjects covered in the workshop.
Lucian Toma has a Master's Degree in Sustainable Development, an internationally recognized Permaculture Design Certification, and is currently leading the Public Programs and Eco-Garden Design Service at The Ecology Center.
