Join homeowner Susan Gottlieb and naturalist Scott Logan for light refreshments and an intimate discussion of the garden’s flora and fauna, as well as fall maintenance practices to keep this urban oasis at its best. Guests will receive a copy of the new book The Gottlieb Native Garden: an intimate wildlife journey. Additional copies will be available for purchase.
Sunday in the Garden extends TPF’s Native Plant Garden Tour by spotlighting exceptional native plant gardens year round. Each visit includes conversations with homeowners and/or designers, and plenty of time for exploration and socializing.
About the Garden:
This one-acre estate includes many mature natives, some more than 25 years old, alongside more recent plantings, all of which attract legions of hummingbirds, songbirds, insects, and other local fauna. A staircase leads down a steep back hillside, handsomely terraced and planted with slope-stabilizing natives. Other highlights: a running stream, water features designed for birds, a fine succulent collection, and an exemplary cat run that give felines time outside while keeping the birds (and cats) safe.
