Bill who is a San Diego native, founded City Farmers Nursery in 1972 and is family owned to this day. Bill is going to educate and entertain us with his years of knowledge on planting gardens in regards to space, size, the right plants and low water use to grow the best edible garden possible – while keeping it simple! He will also discuss proper soil and fertilizer use.
This presentation will help you know what you will need to do in your own gardens! Don't miss it.
Do you love to travel, or are you more of an armchair traveler? Whatever your preferred way to see the world, this presentation will thrill you with images of the world’s most beautiful and inspiring gardens. Every year, Nan leads a garden tour to somewhere in the world to see gardens, visit farms, native habitats, nurseries and so much more. She’ll show you amazing, beautiful, imaginative, awe inspiring images shot in gardens she’s seen from England to South Africa, Costa Rica to Spain and some from the US, too. Enjoy this spirited trip while you gather ideas and inspirations for your garden as well!
