Seeking a warmer climate David departed the crisp air of New York City and headed west to California. As a licensed landscape contractor and designer, he knows not all plants are well mannered. So as much as he guides clients on design aesthetics such as color, texture and form, his foremost intention is the continued success of the plantings. He therefore educates his clients about each plant’s growth and maintenance needs, as they are paramount to a successful landscape design.
The Pacific Palisades Garden Club, a nonprofit organization founded in 1944, attracts people living in the Westside communities of the Los Angeles area who enjoy gardening and also like spending time with other gardeners. Its large membership enables it to offer numerous activities unavailable to smaller garden groups.
The Club's sociable monthly meetings, open free to the public, feature speakers who present informative programs on a wide variety of garden-connected topics. Its members are regularly invited to visit local private gardens, and twice a year they can take special daylong tours via chartered bus to prominent public garden sites, garden shows, and special nurseries in outlying areas.
PPGC's Spring Garden Tour is a popular event, and the income it generates helps this charitable organization to support worthy local educational, beautification, and conservation efforts involved in some way with the plant kingdom.
