Fall and Winter Gardening Seminar
Early October in the Demo Garden

A Talk in Orinda: Mediterranean Garden Society

I'll be giving a public lecture and slide show for the Mediterranean Garden Society on Saturday, October 27th, 1:30 pm, at the Orinda Public Library, 24 Orinda Way, in Orinda, CA. I'll have books for sale and signing after the talk.

My topic will be the history and culture of the plants I wrote about in the book Wildly Successful Plants. I consider these plants regional garden treasures--easy to grow, drought tolerant, mostly deer resistant, and beautiful. They include annuals, bulbs, perennials, succulents, and shrubs. Many are from mediterranean climate areas of the world, though some are from other (often surprising) places.

You can read more about my talk, and find a link to a Google map, at http://www.gimcw.org/links/mgs/branches-us-cal-north/ (the page of the Northern California Branch of the Mediterranean Garden Society). If you live nearby, hope you can come and say hello.

If you come to this talk, you can also learn more about the MGS, which is an international group formed to study and enjoy plants of the world's mediterranean climates. See their informative website at www.MediterraneanGardenSociety.org. They'll be having an international conference next year in Monterey, CA. Stay tuned for more information about that.
