After the morning Herb Walk this Saturday we will break for lunch and continuing discussion with landscape contractor Jessica Thompson and then visit the Ojai Valley Land Conservancy’s Ojai Meadows Nursery for the hands-on part of the day. Our host will be Nursery Manager Ron Singer, also known for his informative and entertaining native plant blog, The Ojai Rambler. I like what he had to say in his typically self-effacing style when I asked about his history with OVLC: “Just showed up in 2010 and started doing nursery work, since there was no one else to do it. Became an official OVLC employee in 2011. I have literally no plant experience before that; I’m a NYC Wall Street guy! I guess it goes to show, passion trumps experience, and it’s never too late to find your passion.”
