Arranging California native plants in bouquets, garlands and wreaths for the holidays
November 13, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join the California Native Plant Society to learn more about arranging California native plants in bouquets, garlands and wreaths for the holidays!
This is a continuation of the talk last year, where Cynthia focused on bouquets. This talk will primarily focus on creating garlands and wreaths. Last year’s presentation is on YouTube.
When Cynthia Gingerich and her family moved from the South Bay to the Santa Cruz Mountains fifteen years ago, she inherited a yard stocked with native perennials, trees, and shrubs from the previous homeowners. After attending her first native plant garden tour to learn more, she took another decade to remove non-native plants and increase the habitat value. Now that her yard is planted exclusively with California natives—just a few non-native bulbs and inevitable weeds remain—she is quick to point out that while she loves growing and arranging California natives, she is still a native plants enthusiast, not an expert.
