Fourth Annual Bay-Friendly Garden Tour
Sunday, April 29 2007 - 10am to 4pm
Showcasing Natural Gardening Techniques
Visit a wide assortment of Bay-Friendly Gardens on this FREE, self-guided tour. Over 40 public and private gardens will be featured throughout Alameda County, including an entirely new crop of gardens! Several of the garden clusters are walkable and/or bikeable.
This year's tour continues to celebrate the diverse styles of Bay-Friendly gardens. East Bay gardeners replace front lawns with vibrant perennials. Children and pets play in organic spaces that are healthy for the whole family. Backyard orchards complement flowering ornamentals and offer delicious fruit. Terraced hillsides provide places to gather and enjoy visiting butterflies and hummingbirds. Bay-Friendly Gardens offer something for everyone--come and discover ideas for creating your perfect retreat.
Registration for the tour is required. Registrants will receive a tour guide book with garden directions and descriptions by mail. Native plants, vegetable starts and Mediterranean perennials can be purchased at select sites on the tour.
Online registration and a sneak preview of the 2007 gardens will be posted at http://www.BayFriendly.org by Thanksgiving. Volunteers are needed for the day of the tour. If interested, please contact Lawrence Grodeska at lgrodeska [at] stopwaste.org or 510-614-1699.
