The groundbreaking of the Theodore Payne Foundation’s state of the art education center marks the expansion of robust education efforts designed to help LA residents young and young at heart understand and work with our delicate natural environment. The project will add two classrooms; demonstration gardens; parking facilities; and bathroom upgrades to the site, tripling the organization’s class-hosting capacity.
Theodore Payne Foundation for (California!) Wildflowers and Native Plants and FormLA Landscaping share a common president of the board in Cassy Aoyagi. We also share a common philosophy. We believe choosing native foliage ensures Los Angeles thrives while rocking a look distinctive from anywhere else in the world. Theodore Payne Foundation promotes this uniquely California aesthetic, educates the public about the how-tos of native gardening, and maintains a bountiful nursery of natives.
