TOLN October Events

October Events at Tree of Life Nursery

Create & Care with Mike Evans

Saturday 10/09 at 9:30 am In Person & Live Online

Mike Evans, one of our founders and beloved native plant horticulturist, will be presenting his infamous ‘Create and Care’ workshop. Planning and planting your garden and getting your California native plants off to a good start is the first fun step in creating your landscape. Long term care, sometimes called “maintenance” is more about connecting and engaging with your garden than working through a list of chores. As native plants become established and the garden starts to function as a whole, rather than a sum of parts, your involvement becomes that of a steward and participant. As Mike often reminds us “maintenance is something you do on your car not your plants.” 
We ask you kindly to bring masks or do your best to social distance while attending the workshop.   We will have a live online version of Mike’s talk available on our YouTube channel:
