Carefree Desert Gardens hosts first program season


CAREFREE – The Carefree Desert Gardens seminar series is hosting its first program on the season on Saturday, Jan. 13.

When making plant selections for landscape, many people may rush into purchases because they think they are pretty, but many times residents discover the plants will not thrive in their new environment.

At the Jan. 13 meeting, Carefree Desert Gardens welcomes Cesar Mazier, president of Cesar Mazier Landscaping & Consulting, Inc. He will discuss environment and landscape conditons as well as the background and spaces plants will occupy.

Mazier, former Director of Horticulture for the Desert Botanical Garden, is  internationally recognized for his expertise in desert horticulture. He has interacted with botanical gardens and national parks throughout the world. He has appeaered on PBS and HGTV. In 2002, Mazier was the recipient of the prestigious Master of the Southwest by Phoenix Home and Garden Magazine.

The program, usually including a plant raffle, will begin at 9:30 a.m. and run approximately until noon at the Town Council Chambers’ new location at 33 Easy Street and Nonchalant Avenue, in Carefree. A $5 or more donation is appreciated to support these programs. 

For more information, call (480) 488-3686. Come early, as seating is limited.
