From Trails to Gardens: Celebrating Local Native Plants 
Wednesday, May 05, 2021 07:30pm
 

For many of us, hiking has activated an interest in gardening with California native plants. This talk explores many of our locally native plants in Santa Clara Valley through hiking photos and compares native plants in our wildlands with their counterparts in gardens.

What unusual plants are growing closer to us than we think and where can we see them? What do we learn about how to grow natives from seeing them in their natural setting? Do plants look different or respond in unexpected ways when grown under garden conditions?

A plant list of California natives seen on local trails that also thrive when grown in gardens will be shared, along with many inspirational home garden and wildland trail photos.

Stephanie Morris has been working in the field of Landscape Architecture for 25 years. She enjoys creating designs that respond to aesthetics, functionality, and ecology ̶ with emphasis on California native plants, healthy soil, water-conservation, and environmentally-conscious materials.
