Southern California Native Plants for School Gardens – Betsy Landis
For the convenience of teachers, the Southern California Native Plants for School & Urban Gardens book has been split into three sections and saved as four separate pdf files (Section II: Planting has been split into two files because it is too big to conveniently download as one file). These files in part or as a whole are free to educators, those working on school garden projects, and those working on public urban garden sites. Go to this link to print the free guide.
