Are you looking to start a native plant garden in order to save water, add habitat, and create beauty? Are you new to growing drought-tolerant native plants? Do you want to include them in your garden for beauty, habitat and sustainability, but don’t know where to begin?

Come to this talk and learn about the many easy-to-grow native trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals for the home garden. Many of these plants are native to our local area and will thrive with just a little water and care.

Anne Risberg is an enthusiastic native plant gardener who is especially interested in the connection between animals, birds and insects and our native California plants. She became hooked on native plants when she moved to the San Mateo Highlands and the 50-year old Toyon tree in her yard became inundated with hungry cedar waxwings who came to feast on its ripe red berries.

Anne is also involved with landscaping during her work managing commercial properties, where the focus is practicality and what plants make a good 20-year investment and which ones just go away after a few years.

Location Mateo Highlands Recreation Center, 1851 Lexington Ave., San Mateo
