I just heard about this and I can't come tonight but I do hope you'll have it again. I'm a brand new Burbank resident and I'm looking forward to landscaping.

Faith,

Good news! I just got this information off the Burbank Water and Power website:

"BWP's JANUARY 25TH "NATIVE NIGHTS" EVENT IS FULL!

But, don't be discouraged! We're having a similar workshop at our Earth Day event on April 21. Attendees will learn how to plant a garden filled with native and California friendly plants from speaker Lili Singer, a recognized garden writer and Southern California plant expert. FREE California Native Plant Seeds and refreshments will be provided and there will be fun gardening activities for kids.

BWP's EARTH DAY EVENT WILL BE SATURDAY, APRIL 21 FROM 1 to 4 PM. More information on this event will be available in the coming weeks."

If you're interested in gardening, I would definitely peruse their site. They offer landscaping classes, free shade trees, and free drip irrigation kits. Click on the links for more info. Thanks for reading the blog!
