Volunteers Sought for Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour

This year the Friends of Sausal Creek are sponsoring the Bringing 
Back the Natives Garden Tour!

The Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour is seeking volunteers who 
will spend a morning or afternoon greeting tour participants and 
answering questions at this exciting, free native plant garden tour. 
More than 60 gardens located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa 
counties will be showcased on this tour, which will take place on 
Sunday, May 7, 2006. Volunteers can select the garden they would like 
to spend time at by visiting the "2006 Gardens" section at 

Greeters do not need to be familiar with natives; they staff the 
entry tables, take tickets, and are friendlyto the general public. 
Garden Assistants help the hosts and should be able to answer basic 
questions about native plants.

Benefits to volunteers include: invitations to monthly Garden 
Soirees, in which a variety of tour gardens are open to hosts and 
volunteers for leisurely and companionable viewing; a pre-tour 
meeting with the owner and private tour of the garden you will be 
staffing; a guaranteed tour reservation for the half day you are 
free; a Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour t-shirt, and, perhaps 
best of all, heartfelt thanks for helping to educate the general 
public about the many pleasures and benefits of gardening with 
California native plants.  You can browse the website at 
ww.BringingBackTheNatives.net to choose the garden you would like to 
be assigned to just fill our the Volunteer Form. For more 
information, please e-mail Kathy Kramer at 
Kathy at KathyKramerConsulting.net, or call (510) 236-9558 between 9 am 
and 9 pm.
