Additional highlights include tours of beautiful, low-water gardens; potting demonstrations and workshops; a huge assortment of succulents and low-water plants for sale; experts on hand to answer landscape design and plant-care questions; 20 acres of nursery and display gardens to explore; and vendors offering succulent-themed gifts, container gardens and more.

Corrected flier

Now this is something you don't want to miss.  A potting workshop with my dear friend Debra Lee Baldwin.  It ought to be a blast.  I will be there either making my own or helping.  Please note that the potting workshop is from 4:30 to 5:30.  The web site is incorrect at the moment.

Waterwise pottings

You might be able to create something as beautiful as these succulent pots I shot while on a visit to Waterwise last year.
