COFFEE IN THE GARDEN WITH JOAN CITRON
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 23
10:00 am–1:00 pm
If you don't know Joan Citron personally, you may recognize her from her frequent plant sales at the back table during meetings. (Or as the person who calls the numbers for the Opportunity Drawing.) She was also the editor in charge of 'Selected Plants for Southern California Gardens', our compendium of practical knowledge gathered from SCHS members.
Joan's large garden was designed in a formal style for meditation and also to provide seasonal color throughout the year. However, Joan does not coddle her plants – her garden is composed of things that survive in her native soil and climate (with temperature ranges from 23º – 120ºF) with very little supplemental water.
You will have a chance to hear her back stories on the development of her unique garden with its collection of plants from the very common to the very specialized.
Please join us for an informal tour with coffee and light refreshments on Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. This tour is free to SCHS members, but a $5.00 entry fee will apply to guests (guest passes can be used). Joan's garden is located in Reseda, in the San Fernando Valley. Once you sign up, we will contact you with directions.
