We create and promote California native plant restoration gardens that support wildlife in the urban environment.

So far we have replaced over 350,000 SF of traditional landscapes (mostly TURF!) to 100 percent native landscapes. Saving over 5 million gallons of water per year.


Events this Month:

Fridays in the Garden at the Sonoma County Living Learning Landscapes (WWW.LivingLearningLandscapes.com).
