Topic: Gardens of Southern England—Part 1

 Date: May 23, 2024 • 7 p.m.

Location: Shepard Garden & Arts Center, 3330 McKinley Blvd, Sacramento

Charlotte Owendyk and Linda Knowles, “Rose Buds,” are excited to share with you some of the fabulous gardens they visited on their tour sponsored by
Garden Gate and Horticulture magazines in July 2022. It was a wonderful,
jam-packed 8-day trip with like-minded gardeners.

They will share their photos of Sissinghurst Castle, Great Dixter House,
Sussex Prairie, and The Royal Horticultural Society Floral Fair at Hampton Court. Prepare to swoon over all the gorgeousness! 

They hope to dig into the evolving different styles of English garden design. You’ll see the famous, traditional English flower borders, modern garden design, and even their concept of the American prairie!

Be ready with questions and comments. They invite you to interrupt them as often as they interrupt each other! There will be laughter!

April General Meeting

Event: April General Meeting

Speaker: Brian Woods

Topic: Urban Habitat Creation and Restoration

Date: April 25, 2024 • 7 p.m.

Location: Shepard Garden & Arts Center, 3330 McKinley Blvd, Sacramento

Urban Habitat Creation and Restoration is a personal mission of Brian Woods to bring diversity and wildlife to our gardens and more broadly, Northern California. We’ll explore alternative ways of thinking about, and managing the challenges we find in our local gardens, from the multi-year drought to an onslaught of plant-killing fungi and hungry insects looking for a meal. We’ll also explore the benefits of exotic and drought tolerant flora, and the importance (and beauty) of our Native California plants. The benefits of practicing Urban Habitat Restoration extend beyond the tiniest of creatures and yield opportunities for us to observe, and interact with a rich ecosystem in any size plot.
