7th Annual Bay-Friendly Garden Tour
Sunday, April 25, 2010 from 10 am to 4pm
Showcasing Natural Gardening Techniques
Visit a wide assortment of Bay-Friendly Gardens on this FREE,
self-guided tour. Forty 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.
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 2010 gardens are
available at www.BayFriendly.org <http://www.bayfriendly.org/>. Please
register by April 15^th so that you can receive a tour guide book.
*Want to be more involved?*
Volunteers are also needed for the day of the tour. In just a 3.5 hour
shift, volunteers will help the host gardeners by greeting guests,
distributing information and answering questions. We will do our best to
match volunteers to the gardens and/or location of their choice.
Volunteers will meet other gardeners and receive a Bay-Friendly
Gardening cotton t-shirt, an advanced copy of the tour book, and garden
gifts while furthering the goals of Bay-Friendly Gardening—encouraging
the use of ecological gardening practices in order to conserve local
resources and protect the Bay.
