Gardening with California Natives
Date: January 30, 2020
Time: 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Contact: Julie Witz, SpeakersBureau@MarinMG.org
Sponsor: Marin Master Gardeners
Location: Sausalito City Hall, Council Chambers
The Program: There are thousands of native California plants and Marin County is the perfect place for many of them. Learn why and how using native plants in your landscape is a way to help make up for habitat lost to development. Because native plants have co-evolved with native birds, butterflies, bees, other beneficial insects and mammals, planting them in your gardens helps maintain these populations. By using native plants, you can build a beautiful landscape that uses less water and fewer chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
The Speaker: Before becoming a Marin Master Gardener in 2014, Bob Mauceli was a Master Gardener for 9 years in New York. He lives on a Novato hillside landscaped with 21 Tuscan olive trees, native trees, shrubs, ground covers and perennials. Bob is also a member of the California Native Plant Society, and is a birder. He has built natural habitats in all the places he and his family have lived.
