What Makes Gardening with Natives Special?

Presenter: Chrissy Freeman

Virtual event. Saturday, September 19, noon

Explore how gardening with California native plants differs from gardening with regular nursery plants, with Redbud member and Nevada County Master Gardener Chrissy Freeman. We’ll cover how native plants, particularly local natives, contribute to the ecosystem, from the soil to insects to birds and other fauna. See special landscape design considerations and opportunities that using native plants in your landscape offers. Chat about gardening best practices specific to natives! Chrissy will share photos of a variety of native-plant gardens and the plants that live in them.

This event is part of the Redbud Chapter’s “Grow with Redbud” – an Online Festival of California Native Plants! Festival runs August 22 – September 23. (More information about the festival at
