California native plant propagation for beginners

Saturday | May 11, 2019 | 10:00 am — 2:00 pm

Walnut Creek | Walnut Creek, CA

Join renowned environmental educator Judy Adler in a hands-on workshop at her half-acre garden, where you will learn how to propagate California native plants from seeds, cuttings, and divisions, and take home plants you have propagated yourself! Why learn to propagate natives? Because it’s easy, inexpensive, and great fun! If you are interested in California native plants and eager to expand your gardening horizons into the realm of propagation, then this hands-on workshop is the class for you! Join environmental educator and passionate horticulturist, Judy Adler, and learn the basics of native plant propagation in her diverse Walnut Creek garden. All will take home plants they have started during the class plus additional vegetative materials and seeds to try at home. Topics include soil mixes, how and when to start seeds, techniques for starting cuttings and more. The class fee includes potting soil, pots, plant labels and pens, but please bring labeled pruning shears, and trowels. Bring a brown bag lunch, and enjoy it in the garden. In addition to the propagation activities, you’ll learn some basic botany related to plant reproduction and about plant-pollinator relationships. A list of California native plant propagation resources will be provided. Confirmation letters will be sent the week prior to the class with directions to Judy’s house and other workshop details. Judy Adler is an environmental educator and consultant who has received numerous prestigious awards for her work. She teaches ecology to hundreds of schoolchildren during unique outdoor field trip experiences through her business, Diablo Nature Adventures.
