Children’s Gardens with San Francisco Native Plants

June 26 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join the San Francisco Public Library and CNPS Yerba Buena to learn how to create fun and safe environments for children to enjoy nature!
Children learn by exploring and learn with all their senses. San Francisco native plants can provide soft, safe environments for young children and opportunities for exploring the natural world, including butterflies and birds, for older children. We discuss what to plant in San Francisco to provide opportunities for children to learn and explore nature.
Susan Karasoff gardens in San Francisco’s clay soil. She is a member of the California Native Plant Society – Yerba Buena (San Francisco) chapter. Karasoff has an “only the easiest plants survive” approach to gardening. She grows a buffet of colorful native edible and pollinator plants, specifically gardening to feed caterpillars and bees.
