Vegetables Now...Chicks Later

Whenever we mention our Sunday class, Replacing Your Lawn, why do we post pictures of butterflies? (stalked and photographed at City Farmers, of course)

Because a new landscape minus the lawn rewards you with a unique, beautiful garden that can attract these graceful creatures, lower your water usage and reduce your maintenance. 

Replacing Your Lawn Sunday, February 22. 10:00-11:30 am This class will focus on landscaping with California Native Plants, but the principles taught can apply to many landscaping themes. Additional information
