"That's Life" highlights UC Davis Arboretum, Teaching Nursery

Show host Lois Richter visits with Ellen Zagory, director of horticulture, and Francesca Claverie, assistant nursery manager from the UC Davis Arboretum. They discuss the latest happenings and plantings at the new Teaching Nursery, its demonstration garden showcasing the Arboretum "All-Stars," upcoming annual plant sales, workshops and more. On the western end of the Arboretum, an important new installation is under construction--the Nature's Gallery Court. It includes 140 hand-crafted tiles, depicting native and drought-tolerant plants and beneficial insects, made by students, faculty, and community members as part of the Art/Science Fusion Program. The Arboretum, a living museum occupying more than 100 acres, showcases cataloged collections from throughout California and many regions of the world. It is a resource for teaching, research, public education and recreation.
