Arvind’s Garden at Lake Cunningham
No one has to twist Arvind Kumar’s arm to
get him to lead a tour of
the California Native Plant garden near the edge of Lake Cunningham
Information for volunteer gardeners and
interested passersby is prominently posted
A tiny native cottonwood tree will
one day be a giant providing welcome
shade to the shrubs and grasses below
In time, native shrubs such as these will
naturalize and spread to fill the space.
Invading weeds need to be dug out to keep down the competition for water.
