Nan Sterman - Prefect Pairings; Taste Succulents & Non-Succulent Plant Combinations
The Laguna Beach Garden Club is thrilled to welcome Nan Sterman as December Speaker for
their wildly popular 2019-2020 Speaker Series. Nan will share an illustrated presentation of
some creative combinations of succulents and non-succulents as she discusses the infrastructure
and garden practices that keep “blended” gardens healthy and thriving.
Nan Sterman is a garden expert, designer, author, botanist, and an award-winning journalist.
Articles by Nan appear in the LA Times and San Diego Union Tribune and several other
regional, national and international journals. She is dedicated to the transformation of planted
landscapes from overly thirsty and resource intensive to climate appropriate and sustainable. Her
efforts combine age-old techniques with modern technologies. Her most recent book, Hot Color
Dry Garden, is about creating color-filled, waterwise gardens and will be available for purchase
at the meeting.
Nan hosts and co-produces the award-winning public TV show, A Growing Passion, which
connects plants, people, and the planet. The show takes viewers to farms and nurseries,
backyard and school gardens, native habitats and more.
Nan Sterman holds a botany degree, a Masters in biology, and a Masters in instructional design.
Before delving into the professional gardening world, Nan created curricula, training programs,
and educational materials for Fortune 500 companies, zoos, aquaria, museums, and other
organizations. Her ability to take complex information and create effective educational programs
is one of her greatest strengths, and a major source of her successes.
Please join us for our December 13th meeting and Speaker Series with Nan Sterman.
