Those that do have the knowledge may not speak English fluently and face language barriers in communicating with their homeowner clients.The class features guest speakers from public agencies, community-based nonprofits, and local landscaping businesses, including Theodore Payne Foundation for Wildflowers and Native Plants, Pasadena Water and Power, the City of South Pasadena, and the Chino Basin Water Conservation District.The students will take field trips to Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden and Huntington Gardens, and a tour of local model native plant gardens will be sponsored by the Theodore Payne Foundation.The current class includes students from Mexico, China, Korea and Indonesia.This free class meets twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 6:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the PCC Community Education Center. Enrollment is ongoing, and students may register at any time, as long as space is available.For more information, contact instructor Carolyn Corrie at (626) 585-3207 or email [email protected] Make a comment Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena First Heatwave Expected Next Week last_img
