Jerry, who has been a garden club member for the past 39 years, has served as California NativeFlora Chairman during much of this time. As a result of the severe drought period of the 1970's he decided to landscape his 2 acres with drought tolerant plants—particularly those native to Lake County. He will tell us about the Dos and Don'ts of putting native plants under cultivation.
