  • The Contra Costa County Library experienced some technical glitches with this webinar that aired on January 25th. If you either missed the talk or you'd like to see it again, we've posted the recording on our YouTube channel. We invite you to visit our channel and experience the joy of succulents, along with 24 other popular talks from the past couple of years. Description: Succulents are beautiful, generally low-maintenance and low-water-use plants. They are also excellent choices for a fire-safe landscape. Learn how to select, grow, and propagate these plants for both indoor and outdoor enjoyment. Please join us for this beautifully illustrated program and be amazed at the many succulent varieties in every color, shape and size that can enhance your home and garden. Presenter Anna Frankfurt, a UC Master Gardner volunteer since 2013, has loved gardening since age 10. She has worked with succulents for 11 years as part of the succulent study group of the El Cerrito Garden Club. She is an Ask a Master Gardener lead for the Kensington Farmers Market and county-wide single-day events. She also coordinates Speakers Bureau programs at the Kensington Library. Presenter Laura Brainin-Rodriguez, a UC Master Gardener volunteer since 2018, has loved plants all her life. She has also learned the hard way how to care for succulents. It took her three tries to keep a firestick plant alive (Euphorbia tirucalli) and she is still working on Echeverias! Laura is a co-lead of the Ask a Master Gardener Project and is a member of the Jardineros en el Huerto team, bringing vegetable gardening expertise to our Spanish-speaking community.
