Smart, Gorgeous, Sensible Succulent Gardens
During her 20-year career as a succulent fashionista, Debra Lee Baldwin has seen it all. From front yards that sadly illustrate what-not-to-do to homeowner-designed masterpieces, Debra shows us the good, the bad and the magnificent. You’ll be inspired, amused, awed by beauty, impressed by practicality, and likely never see succulent gardens in the same way again. With humor, common sense and horticultural know-how, Debra deepens our knowledge and appreciation of these versatile, low-water plants. She’ll sign books before and after her presentation.
The meeting will also be presented live via zoom. The zoom presentation starts at 6:45. Use the link below to register to receive the zoom link.

Fire Resistant Native Landscapes Are NOT An Oxymoron!
“Nearly two dozen of Greg’s installations have been involved in major fire events without the loss of a single home. This talk will explore the basic principles in creating a native landscape that is appealing throughout the year, consumes less water, is lower maintenance, is unequaled for erosion control, serves as great habitat, and, yes, is fire resistant!
