Bay-Friendly Garden Tour - Sunday, April 25, 2010

Seventh Annual Bay-Friendly Garden Tour
Sunday, April 25, 2010- 10am to 4pm
Showcasing Natural Gardening Techniques

The 7th annual FREE tour continues to celebrate the diverse styles of Bay-Friendly with 40 private gardens will be featured in geographic clusters throughout Alameda County in Emeryvile, Oakland, Alameda and Fremont. Several of the garden clusters are walkable and/or bikeable.

This year's tour continues to celebrate the diverse styles of Bay-Friendly gardens. Come see how gardeners have removed concrete and reused creatively, replaced lawns and installed year-round edible gardens.

Locally-owned businesses and non-profits will also be hosting plant sales on tour day. This means you'll have the chance to not only see a tremendous palette of plants, but also the opportunity to bring some home. Some of the organizations participating in tour day plant sales include LEAF (Local Ecology and Agriculture Fremont), the Emeryville Community Garden and Handsown Nursery.

Registration for the tour is required. Visit http://www.BayFriendly.org by April 15, 2010 to register for the tour. Registrants will receive a tour guide book with garden directions and descriptions by mail.

Online registration and a sneak preview of the 2010 gardens are available at http://www.BayFriendly.org. Volunteers are needed for the day of the tour. If interested, please contact Adrienne Ramirez at aramirez [at] stopwaste.org or 510/891-6500.
