Artistic Aspect of Growing Succulents

pumpkin2We are pleased to have one of our “own” be our speaker this month. Nicki will do a hands-on demo showing us the artistic aspect of growing succulents. She will demonstrate how to make a succulent pumpkin. This is a perfect time of year to show off fall colors and decorate with a living centerpiece!

She became a certified Master Gardener for Fresno County in 1993, and within the Master Gardener Program has explored her interests in perennials, drought tolerant plants, succulents, edible landscaping, sustainable landscaping, right plant in the right place, trees, vermiculture, composting, and plant propagation.
