Hi Friends of Sausal Creek,

Please help us make the upcoming native plant sale a huge success by 
forwarding the below email and attached flyer to your friends and 
neighbors. I have already distributed the information to the 
Glenfriends, Dimond, Laurel, and Redwood Heights listservs, and will 
soon be sending it to our plant sale email list; my apologies if you get 
the announcement from multiple sources. We also have a tab flyer 
designed for hanging on community bulletin boards; please contact me for 
digital or paper copies.

Thank you for your help! I look forward to seeing many of you this 
Saturday in Dimond Park for Creek-to-Bay Day, as well as at the plant sale.


The Friends of Sausal Creek (FOSC) will hold our fall Native Plant Sale 
on *Sunday, October 24*, *10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.* at the Joaquin Miller 
Park Native Plant Nursery. Attached please find a flyer so you can help 
us spread the word! The flyer can also be downloaded at 
http://www.sausalcreek.org/pdf/FOSC_Plant-Sale_2010.pdf .

Native plant experts will be available all day to help shoppers pick 
appropriate plants for their specific planting areas. This year’s plant 
sale will feature workshops and live music throughout the day to 
celebrate completion of the nursery’s expanded shady propagation and 
growing area and new teaching circle.

There will also be tables to visit, including Alameda County Master

Linda Erickson with awesome live arachnids, plus face painting for the 
kids. Live music will be provided by Harlan James Bluegrass Band and 
Juke Joint Johnny. This year’s sale is an event not to be missed! Bring 
your family, neighbors, and friends...and, if possible, a cardboard box 
to get your plants safely home with you.
