VALUED CUSTOMERS & FRIENDS+
This month reminded us of the power of partnership.
We are incredibly grateful to Emi Yoshimura, Nadia Hagen and Descanso Gardens for the opportunity to showcase the important expertise of fire wise landscape experts and community garden instigators.
Our friends J Lopez, James Carlson and Kitty Connolly, Suzanne Haller, Hilda Weiss, Maria De Leon, and Roger Klemm were so incredibly generous with their know how and time. We loved learning from you and sharing you!
We appreciate those who helped us prepare materials for interviews, including Plant Right and Cal-IPC. This thing took a village, and we are so happy to share ours with you!
Last, but certainly not least, we appreciate each of you who came to learn and enrich both our know-how and the discussion. Thank you.
We are ready! Now. Let’s fight some fires!
