Truman Young leads PLS 164, the Restoration Practicum course at U.C. Davis, every quarter for students interested in learning more about the ins and outs of restoration. It gives them a chance to tour local restoration sites and contribute (get their hands dirty) to the work being done to conserve California’s native flora and fauna. As the TA for this class, I have the fun of arranging and tagging along on all field trips. On May 8th we headed out to Hedgerow Farms for a grand tour from the native seed producer’s own founder, John Anderson. John is a professor emeritus (veterinarian too!) of U.C. Davis, and he continues to promote and restore native plants in Yolo County and beyond. Here are some photos from our recent trip, and check out the following article in which Hedgerow Farms, John Anderson, and Truman are featured (and me too! I am wearing the red v-neck t-shirt and my trademark hat).
