A talk by Arvind Kumar. What makes California a world hotspot of biodiversity? Why should the California home gardener care? Learn about the critical role native plants play in a healthy environment, how human pressures are driving them to the brink of extinction, and what you, as a home gardener, can do to save and celebrate them. Learn how to provide habitat for wildlife, conserve natural resources, save time and money, and give your yard a sense of place -- by using native plants in your garden. Plant lists will be provided.
Arvind Kumar has been gardening with native plants for over 10 years and is the president of the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society.
