Lawn to Native Landscape (& Chapter Elections)

October 28, 2023  2 p.m.

Location: Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way, Nevada City

Presenters: Chrissy Freeman & Tece Markel

Back by popular demand! This program was a big hit in Roseville in August. Now we’re bringing it to Nevada County, including more plants from this county (as well as Placer County). Save water, beautify your yard, and support our local birds and butterflies by converting your lawn to a native landscape! Learn how you can do this at a free public workshop.

Learn how to remove or reduce your lawn, and choose native plants that can thrive and enrich your new landscape. The program’s presenters will also share special insights about designing landscapes with native plants. See images of many locally native plants, even a native grass lawn, as well as native plant landscapes that were once just lawn.

Both Chrissy Freeman and Tece Markel are active in the Redbud Chapter, as well as members of Master Gardener programs.

At the beginning of the program, we’ll elect chapter officers. We have a slate of candidates, and we’ll open nominations from the floor. For more info, see early September Redbud News.
