January 9th, “Gardening in the Pacific Northwest”, Paul Bonine, Xera Plants

A gardener’s plant choices and garden style are inextricably linked to the place they call home. To grow a flourishing garden, every gardener must know the specifics of their region’s climate, soil, and geography.  Join us as Paul Bonine, co-author of the new Timber Press book, “Gardening in the Pacific Northwest” shares his extensive experience and insight into successful gardening in the Pacific Northwest.  Paul will bring books for sale.

Paul is a garden writer, lecturer, and co-owner of the wholesale and retail specialty plant nursery Xera Plants, in Portland, Oregon. A lifelong plantsman, Paul has worked in the nursery industry for nearly twenty years and has consulted for NPR, the Sunset Western Garden Book, and The Oregonian.

Following the speaker's presentation which starts at 7pm, consider hanging out for little longer. Besides getting some great snacks, we'll have a brief meeting with mention of future events, and hopefully approve the 2018 budget!
