Visit a wide assortment of Bay-Friendly Gardens on this FREE, self-guided tour. Over 30 public and private gardens will be featured throughout Alameda County, all of them for the first time on this year's tour! Several of the clusters are walkable and/or bikeable. This year's tour celebrates the diverse styles of Bay-Friendly gardens. A Mediterranean inspired retreat behind olive, fig and pomegranate trees. A corner garden with rooms hedged in by drought tolerant plants from around the globe. A native plant hillside terraced under a lofty oak. An edible kitchen garden complete with hens and bees. This is just a taste of what you'll find throughout your day's exploration. For a sneak preview of the tour, visit www.BayFriendly.org. Registration for the tour is required. Registrants will receive a tour guide book with garden directions and descriptions by mail. Native plants can be purchased at select sites on the tour. For more information or to register, please visit www.BayFriendly.org or call 510-444-SOIL. Volunteers are needed for the day of the tour.
