  The Other Side of the Garden Fence - Learning from Nature

 This program is about being a better gardener, by being a keen observer of how nature does it.  If we just look carefully and pay attention, our wild areas will give us lessons about how we     might approach our gardens.  The fully illustrated program will show plant communities and habitats from throughout Orange County with expert discussion of such 'garden' topics as slope,   aspect, water and its seasonality, exposure, soil texture, soil composition, nutrients, insect associations and much more.  If you like nature and gardens, this is a good choice.
