Wildflower Super Blooms of 2017 and 2019
with Yvonne Savio
Yvonne grew up and still lives on a ¾ acre hillside in Pasadena, growing fruits, vegetables, and flowers year-round in manure- and compost-amended gardens. She is passionate about enabling others to enjoy the benefits of "growing your own." She earned various degrees from Cal State and also obtained a Horticultural degree from American River College in Sacramento. For 15 years, Yvonne worked in the Botany and Vegetable Crops Cooperative at UC Davis. She is a Master Gardener with many awards and accolades.
Yvonne also maintains demo- and trial gardens throughout California, specializing in drought-tolerant techniques for growing vegetables, fruits, perennials, roses, and succulents. In addition, she documents the creative fun stuff of repurposed tools and garden art on her excellent website gardeninginla.net.
Yvonne will discuss her travels to many of the most-floriferous wildflower areas in 2017 and 2019 following the wonderful winter rains. Each area has its own specialties due to elevation and soils, but all are vast in scale and gloriously beautiful. Yvonne will display and discuss plants, and with her PowerPoint presentation, will take us on a colorful journey through the wildflower super blooms at Carrizo Plain, Goleta, Ventura, Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, and Joshua Tree National Monument.
