bring your own boxes or crates for your purchases.

*Directions:* The nursery is located in Joaquin Miller Park on Sanborn 
Road.  If driving, take the Joaquin Miller Drive exit off of Highway 13 
and head uphill.  Turn left onto Sanborn (there are lots of signs, 
including one in the median that says "Native Plant Nursery").  To reach 
the nursery, park near the Ranger Station and walk past the yellow gate 
across Sanborn; the nursery is about 1/4 mile on your left.  On the day 
of the plant sale, there will be greeters to assist you.
