Ecology Center Event

Growing Winter Succulents & Turning Them Into Holiday Gifts

Saturday | November 13, 2021 | 11:00 am — 1:00 pm

Online Event

Can succulents survive in the winter? The answer is yes. Can you grow them yourself? Absolutely!

Extreme cold even brings out the gorgeous and vibrant colors of these hardy plants. Their ease of propagation and low water requirements make them a unique, compelling and environmentally friendly gift as you start thinking about your holiday giving.

In this workshop, Ecology Center Classroom instructor Lori “Compost Gal” Caldwell” will teach you the steps needed to successfully grow your own winter succulents and share unique ideas of how to package them in beautiful upcycled containers.

Lori will talk to you about the soil, water and sunlight needs of winter succulents. You will also learn about the use of soil amendments, how to control pests naturally, when to plant and correct drainage and aeration for your plants.

Lori Caldwell is an Alameda County Master Composter, a Stopwaste Educator, avid edible gardener and Bay-Friendly Qualified Landscape Professional. She has been happily teaching sustainable gardening classes all over the Bay Area since 2007. Her mission is to connect people to the soil and all that it provides.
