On Monday, November 5, 2018, EBMUD will celebrate the Landscape Advisory Committee’s 30-year anniversary.  Formed during a severe drought in 1988, the LAC has enhanced communication between the landscape industry and EBMUD. The celebration will include congratulations from VIP’s, a guest speaker, and delicious sweet and savory bites.

After the LAC recognition,  join Wendy Proud (California Sales Representative for Mountain States Wholesale Nursery) to learn how desert plants offer the perfect solution to difficult landscape situations. Wendy will dazzle us with a unique mix of colorful plants native to the southwest and discuss planting techniques and hydrozoning. Wendy will provide design examples that combine southwest plants, California native plants, and plants from around the world to create a landscape full of pollinators and beauty year round.

Wendy Proud holds a degree in Ornamental Horticulture and has 25 years of sales and production experience in the retail and wholesale nursery business. While living in the Los Angeles area, Wendy was a Grower and New Plants Manager for Monrovia Growers, promoting unique plant varieties. She also co-owned a landscape design and installation company, Proud Murphy, Inc. offering specialized maintenance programs, horticultural coaching and organic gardening.
