The Southern California Horticultural Society is pleased to honor Mike Evans with the 2019 Horticulturist of the Year award. As the owner of Tree of Life Nursery, Mike Evans has profoundly influenced how Californians think about their gardens. He is a huge advocate for California native plants, and for getting people out of their urban lives and back into nature, even in their own back yards. Please join us in supporting the vision of this forward-thinking horticulturist.

Festivities will be held in Ayres Hall.
Social hour and Silent Auction begin at 5:30pm.
Silent Auction closes at 7:00pm, followed by dinner service.
