As our water resources grow ever more limited, we need to think about gardens that require little summer water and feature beautiful plants adapted to our own version of a Mediterranean climate. The five regions of the world with this climate--California, South Africa, central Chile, the Mediterranean Basin, and southwestern Australia--are great sources for these appropriate plants.

Many homeowners are going towards an all-native garden, but most of us prefer to mix our own natives with plants from other Mediterranean climates. This course will focus on creating a mixture of such plants that look good together, provide beauty, and are easy to maintain.

Five Thursday evening sessions from 6:30 to 9 pm starting June 26 and ending July 31 (we will not have class on July 10), and one field trip to Santa Cruz Arboretum on Saturday, July 19 starting at 10 am.
