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.
