Rosendale has more than 20 years of experience designing and consulting on water-wise gardening and lawn-to-plant conversions. His business includes two acres of demonstration gardens, where visitors can see how plants from Australia, South Africa and Chile -- as well as California -- can be combined with mounds of soil, boulders, drip irrigation and mulch to achieve attractive landscaping that can reduce water usage by up to 90%, compared to typical lawn areas.
The garden club meets the second Thursday of each month, September through May, in the multi-purpose room of Alisal Elementary School, 1454 Santa Rita Road. Meetings start at 7 p.m., and visitors are welcome.
Club members will sell plants from their own gardens at their annual plant sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 7 in the Amador Valley High parking lot.
