Venue: Los Altos Youth Center, 1 S. San Antonio Rd, Los Altos (adjacent to library, same campus)
M. Nevin Smith is the Director of Horticulture
at Suncrest Nurseries in Watsonville, which
grows a wide selection of native plants and
supplies all Bay Area nurseries. He is the
author of the well-received book, Native
Treasures: Gardening With the Plants of California.
Join us for a lighthearted account of his
attempts to bring promising plants from the
wild to the gardens of California. It will

native plants, with comments on what went
right–and wrong–along the way.
