Join us and the incredible Brandy Williams as we talk about native and non-native succulents! We’ll discuss slowly introducing natives into gardens with limited space, including containers, the challenges of finding plants in general nurseries, mixing textures, pollinator habitat, ways to overcome common garden obstacles in the Los Angeles landscape, growing your own food…and did we mention succulents? Brandy can do it all! There will be a Q&A session.
With garden design and maintenance experience, and a passionate concern for pollinators and their ability to survive, Brandy Williams, in 2015, founded Garden Butterfly, an environmentally conscious boutique landscape company, creating sustainable gardens and pollinator habitats that provide varied beauty in diverse spaces. Her creations include succulents and drought tolerant plants for naturalistic landscapes and tablescape designs. She specializes in creating succulent gardens and custom container plantings.
Brandy is an award winning landscape designer and landscape contractor with a Master of Arts in Human Services: Executive Leadership, and a C-27 California Landscape Contractor’s License. She served as the 2017 and 2018 Vice President of Education for the Los Angeles/San Gabriel Valley Chapter of California Landscape Contractors Association (CLCA).
She understands the importance of service to humanity; and in that vein, has established the yearly Garden Butterfly Give Back in which she donates her time and talents to local organizations and educational projects as a personal commitment to community development.
