We are excited to announce that our 2021 Native Plant Sale (Nov. 6, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.) will be held for the first time at the Monrovia Historical Museum, 742 E. Lemon Ave, Monrovia. We look forward to helping you select the perfect native plants for your garden. Please, help us spread the word, and see you on November 6th.
I think that it is safe to say that nearly everyone is eagerly awaiting the time when we can get back to doing things together—face to face. As a country and as a local community, we have made tremendous progress in knocking down the COVID-19 infections, thanks to the vaccines and to the measures taken by most people to limit the spread of the virus. THANK YOU, EVERYBODY!
We are extremely excited to present our new chapter t-shirt design. Created by local artist Rachelle Boyd, this design features quintessential native plants that capture the spirit of the San Gabriel Mountains - canyon live oak, bush monkeyflower, mountain mahogany, paintbrush, San Gabriel manzanita, toyon, Plummer’s mariposa lily, woollypod milkweed, and Lewis’s clarkia.
Rachelle Boyd, the artist behind our new t-shirt, is an illustrator, fine artist, and outdoor adventurer based out of Southern California. We interviewed her about her love for native plants, what inspired her design, her creative process, and what she is working on now (hint: it involves monarch butterflies!).
