In the middle of a drought, don't forget that natives and Mediterranean plants are
great ways to reduce water consumption in your yard. Merritt College's non-profit plant sale happens this Saturday (9-3) and Sunday (12-3) at the College up Campus Drive. See MerrittLandHort.com for all the details.
Competing for your attention is the Ruth Bancroft Garden's plant sale also on Saturday 11-3 pm in Walnut Creek.
The following weekend is the native plant sale sponsored by the CA Native Plant Society, this year on October 18th at Hidden Villa Ranch in Santa Clara (do elementary school students still go to Hidden Villa for their eco-education overnight?). October 19th, go local to the Friends of Sausal Creek sale at Joaquin Miller Park 10-4 pm. Combine a plant sale and a Lawrence Hall of Science visit by stopping by the UC Botanic Garden's sale also Sunday 10-4 pm. See their blog for more info.
