The UCLA Extension catalog, lists the class as follows:
I taught this course as a half elective on my own for two years before being able to team up with Orchid. Her knowledge and effective teaching puts this class into its own league. Orchid is an award winning designer of California Native gardens, a delegate to the state-wide organization of the California Native Plant Society and did excellent work on the Los Angeles County Native Oak Ordinance Working Group. She has studied water issues for several years and has a keen understanding of the problems we face around that issue. She blogs at Native Sanctuary.
On another front, I return to Los Angeles on Sunday the 26th and be a panelist for the upcoming Dwell on Design event. In the mix of the events right now, I was quoted by the Los Angeles Times in their article on the Seed Library of Los Angeles.
