Although its not exactly a gardening event, there are a lot of Earth Day events going on around the bay area this weekend. Here in Alameda, there is the Earth Day Zero Waste Festival, running Saturday from 10 AM to 3 PM at Washington Park. Other bay area Earth Day events are detailed here and here.
Also in Alameda, Ploughshares Nursery is running a Bay-Friendly Edible Garden Workshop (Sat. 10 AM to 1 PM).
And here’s what’s on sale:
- California native plants are on sale at the Tilden Botanic Gardens in Berkeley on Saturday, 10 AM to 3 PM. This is a popular sale and I hear that people are often lined up an hour or two before the sale opens so they get the best selection. You should also bring cardboard boxes to carry home your plants.
- Succulents are 30% off at Berkeley Hort.
- Sloat Garden Center has sales on echeveria metallica (6”, $7.99); non-stop begonia (4”, $3.99); rhododendron (1 gal., $8.99); and azalea sourthern indica (5 gal. $17.99).
