As we are entering the summer months and there have been numerous warnings on the severe drought conditions, plant scientist Temi Salako wants to have people make a difference from their own homes.
Salako and San Francisco Zion Church are hosting a series of workshops that will allow Northern California residents to learn more about drought-resistant plants. Topics also include landscaping and garden maintenance.
The workshops will be held every other Saturday of the month.
Salako is a recent grad from UC Davis, and helped local schools plant fire-resistant plants following Northern California fires last year.
Drought-resistant plants include:
- Succulents such as ice plants, aeonium and echveria
- Fountain grass
- Fruits and veggies like cucurbits, peppers and tomatoes.
