The Garden Native Committee hosts several special events each year. People travel from all throughout Southern California to attend these events and the events go far in educating, motivating, and inspiring the public to garden with California native plants. The events fall into the three basic categories listed below.

We host a Fall Workshop in September. After a day of presentations from numerous experts speaking from all angles on the subject, participants across the county have been inspired to plant or improve a native garden. A Winter Workshop focusing on restoration and public gardens is under consideration. More details at the Garden Native website.

Held in early October each year in Balboa Park, our Fall Plant Sale offers thousands of native plants for purchase. The sale coincides with the best time of year to install native plants. Expert advice is available at the sale, along with literature, seeds, and native plant swag. This is our homecoming for the year. A Spring Plant Sale is co-hosted in certain years with other organizations. More details at the Garden Native website.
