These Bay Area authors are renowned for their expertise in cultivating fragrant, edible, medicinal, and water-wise plants. Their talk will delve into the world of botanical wonders as they unveil the secrets behind their lush, fragrant and sustainable gardens. Stefani & Penny will delve into the art and science of cultivating plants that not only thrive in our unique Bay Area climate, but also boast powerful fragrance and medicinal properties with high harvest yields that give back to the gardener.

The cannabis plant is a subject of both fascination and controversy. Through their wealth of experience, these authors will shed light on the multifaceted nature of home cannabis cultivation, exploring its therapeutic potential through salves and edibles.

Drawing from their latest works, The Fragrant Flower Garden and The Cannabis Garden, attendees can expect to discover a wealth of practical advice, from selecting the right varieties to implementing sustainable gardening techniques. Whether you're a seasoned gardener or a curious novice, this book talk promises to inspire and inform, offering a glimpse into the rich tapestry of botanical delights.
