More about Francesa Claverie - 

Borderlands Restoration Network (BRN) is a 501c3 based in Patagonia, AZ, that is dedicated to ecological restoration in the US/Mexico Borderlands. Active since 2013, the Native Plant Program of BRN has worked on both sides of the US/Mexico border educating the public and NGO's about the importance of native plants and regionally sourced plant materials. Francesca Claverie, Native Plant Program Director for BRN, will introduce the native plant restoration projects BRN has worked on, as well highlight the importance of regionally sourced native plants and some basics of native plant propagation. There will also be native plants available for purchase after the presentation.

Francesca hails from an alfalfa farm in Calexico, CA where her family has strong roots on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. She started working with native plants at the UC Davis Arboretum while in college and after graduating with degrees in Native American Studies and International Agricultural Development continued as a manager, assisting with propagation research and organizing plant sales. In 2013 she moved to Patagonia for an internship with Native Seeds/SEARCH and shortly after started the nursery for Borderlands Restoration. Francesca is passionate about increasing accessibility and enthusiasm for native plants, and promoting partnerships between nurseries and plant programs on both sides of the border. She serves on the board of the Sweetwater Center in Cascabel, AZ and is an elected town council person for the Town of Patagonia.
