Waterwise Community Day

Saturday, September 23, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join us for our first annual Waterwise Community Day. On this day, we will be helping our community to make their gardens more waterwise, take advantage of precious rainfall, incorporate native plants, protect our watersheds, and become more climate resilient.  This drop-in event will feature our design team, experts in our Nursery, educational partners, unique vendors, as well as resources and talks that all encourage a more sustainable future ahead. Our world-renowned Garden will be the background of this event, providing the inspiration for all who step through its gates.

Our landscape design services department will be giving two free talks at the event! The 15-minute presentations will delve into the creative process behind crafting beautiful dry gardens and will also showcase some of the iconic plants from the Garden that you should consider in your own garden design.

11AM – The Process: Designing your Garden

12PM – Top Ten RBG Plants For Your Garden

Seating will be available for the first 45 people.

The event takes place in our Plaza and Building and is FREE. Garden admission fees apply to those who wish to enter the Garden. Thanks to a generous donation from and anonymous sponsor, all children/youth ages 0-17 will be free for the duration of the event.
