A free, self-guided tour of 50 Alameda and Contra Costa county gardens on May 1, 2011.
This collection of gardens ranges from Jenny and Scott Fleming’s 50-year-old collector’s garden to brand new installations, from five acre lots to small front-yard gardens, from local native plants to natives from throughout California, and from gardens designed and installed by owners to those designed and installed by professionals.
Learn how to:
- Select and care for California native plants,
- attract butterflies, birds and bees to your garden,
- garden without pesticides (and protect your children and pets!),
- lower your water bill.
Garden talks scheduled throughout the day.
