Planting Native Plants in a Challenging Climate: What, Why and How of California Native Plants

Presented by June Juett

Saturday, October 28, 10 to 11:30 am

OVLC Office, 370 W. Baldwin Road Bldg. A4

On Saturday, October 28, 2017, at 10 am join June Juett for a detailed What, Why and How of California Native Plants. Whether you are planting a container, a backyard or ranch land, explore the benefits of increasing biodiversity. It’s not all flower pictures – we’ll be looking at data on water use and simple, but effective techniques that increase success growing California’s native flora in a changing climate. All this just in time for the OVLC Native Plant Sale the following Saturday, November 4.

California native plants are the basis of a healthy ecosystem, providing food, shelter, and places to raise young that are critical to the survival of our native wildlife. This is the perfect time to take the information you learn from this talk and apply it to your home garden. Next Saturday, November 4, we will hold our semi-annual native plant sale at the OVLC Nursery at the Ojai Meadows Preserve. June and our nursery manager Ron Singer will be on hand to answer questions and give advice on planting natives in your garden.

As a former nurse and now as a volunteer restoring native habitats, June has been applying the biological sciences in the nurture of people and plants for many years. She advocates for the preservation and restoration of healthy ecosystems by growing the appropriate native plants in specific habitats.  Her garden in Oak View is bringing increased biodiversity to a degraded remnant oak woodland. Increasingly, June’s focus is on planting successfully in a changing California climate. She volunteers for the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy in the nursery and with the sapling oaks on the Ojai Meadows Preserve.

Her garden may be visited upon request.
