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
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
