Resourcing communities to create a healthier more sustainable future

The Mother Plant Collection

I don’t think it will come as a surprise to hear that our landscapes, especially here in Southern California, need to change.  We’ve offered some guidance on our Sustainability page, but this project is about identifying the best drought tolerant plants for these future landscapes.  Best is always a tricky word.  I’m looking for attractive, easy to grow and propagate, drought tolerant plants that may even offer some medicinal benefits and / or have a great story attached.  After identifying these 6-12 plants, I intend to put in a collection from which cuttings can be taken at the Altadena Community Garden, the La Casita community center, and the Hathaway Sycamores Learning Garden, and get this propagation going along with classes on how to do it yourself.  Let me know what your candidates are.

I love White Sage and need to have it but have not be great at propagating it, so here…
