03.11.2011 Garden Fridays Recap for Mar. 11
A big thanks to everyone who helped out today. We got a thank you from the staff. It is amazing how much the native garden looks now.
11.10.2010 November 9, 2010 Meeting Recap
We had a good turn out in the native garden. A big thanks to Marcos, TreePeople, for guiding us on maintaining our California native plant garden. We removed trash and deadheaded the California Buckwheats’ flowers.
Unfortunately, we had to remove two dead plants. Marcos suggested that we provide some extra water to the plants (since they are not establish yet).
The good news, the Hummingbird Sage is spreading, creating a dense mat on the west side of the garden.
07.24.2010 Native Garden Update
A lot of changes have been made in the native garden. We will look back at the native garden before it was conceived, the Seeds of Change transformation and its current state.
Garden Day - March 20, 2009
The first two images show the space before the transformation. The area was covered with invasive plants and it was an eyesore on campus.
With the help of Marcos from Tree People, Seeds of Change restored the area to its previous natural state with drought-tolerant California Native Plants. Wood mulch was laid down to reduce competition from invasive plants and reduce erosion.

Today - July 24, 2010
The native garden has been transformed in the last year and it is thriving. The Hummingbird Sage is blooming, the California Buckwheat has gone dormant and the California Wild Grape is vigorous.
It is amazing to watch the native garden change from season to season. It is never static and there is always something new to see. Summer is coming to a close and Fall is just around the corner.
