Kelly Marshall has been a lover of gardens and gardening for as long as she can remember. She studied garden design through UC Berkeley Extension, and been in business for 12 years, specializing in natives and drought tolerant gardens. She lives in Clayton, where she has a quarter-acre garden filled with drought-tolerant plants, teenagers, and a dog. Her garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat. Kelly continues to partner with the Contra Costa Water District, Markham Arboretum, and the Bringing Back the Natives Tour to help spread the word about all the wonderful drought tolerant and native plants appropriate for gardeners in the Bay Area. She believes it’s easy to have a low water, sustainable garden here in California if you choose the right plants to begin with.
Kelly will give a PowePoint presentation showing examples and discuss how a designer works with space when losing a lawn and getting a garden. In addition, she will talk about her top native choices for designing a garden--what they are, what they do, and how to use them in a design. She will have her top plant choices available for purchase after her talk.
We hope you’ll join us at 7:30 PM on October 23rd. Visitors are always welcome. For more information visit kmgardendesign.com.

We’re having our propagation workshops on Saturdays from 10-12 at Wolfe Ranch. Please join us. Bring some cuttings from your gardens and your clippers and gloves. Everyone chipping in a little to do what they can helps out so much.
ON THE HORIZON: Mark your calendars for DIG’S HOLIDAY POTLUCK on December 11 at the Brentwood Community Center. Bring an exchange gift. These will be the centerpieces for our tables, so keep that in mind for size and presentation. Garden related gifts, plants and homemade items are always good but nothing expensive please. And if you don’t wish to participate in the gift exchange, that’s fine, come anyway and enjoy some good food and a fun evening with your fellow DIGgers.
Also, don’t miss our January meeting where instead of a speaker we will hold our very popular biennial
AUCTION: It’s an entertaining evening, so save any garden related items you would like to donate for auction. More info on these events will be sent out later.
