Just in time for the fall planting season, Native Here Nursery is having two more native plant sale weekends! Join us in October and November:
This October weekend sale will feature native bulbs as well as our regular selection of East Bay native plants. Native grasses and sedges will be half off as well! Check out our current inventory of native plants here as well as a list of our discounted grasses and sedges. In addition to the sale, East Bay CNPS’ own Frances will be giving a talk on Sunday, October 23rd at noon: How to Covert Your Lawn to Native Plants the Easy Way! You can find more event details about Frances’ talk here on Facebook.

In other news, Native Here still needs watering volunteers! Even though the weather has cooled off (temporarily?), Native Here’s native plants still need help getting enough water and are grateful for any help they can get. If you or someone you know would like to spend an hour or so each week at our peaceful and serene growing grounds in Tilden, enjoying the sounds of the birds and the trees and helping native plants, contact us at NativeHere@ebcnps.org and let us know!
