This post was written by a community member.

The Larkspur Library is proud to welcome back UC Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli, who will share his knowledge of gardening with native California plants.

Thousands of native plants live in California. Marin County, with its Mediterranean climate, is a place where many of the best of these can be grown. Because native plants evolved along with native birds, butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects and mammals; By planting them in our gardens you can maintain these populations. Using native plants can help gardeners create beautiful landscapes with less water, chemical fertilizers, and pesticides. Learn how to use these plants in your garden.

Marin Master Gardener Bob Mauceli has been a Master Gardener for over 16 years and is now co-chair of the Marin Master Gardener Native Plants Guild. Seven years ago he moved to Novato, where he and his wife Sandy created a native plant garden on a steep hill. Bob is also a member of the California Native Plant Society and has been a bird watcher for nearly 50 years. He has used native plants to create biodiversity habitats for wildlife and humans in all the places he and his wife have lived.
