Berkeley, CA, October 3 and 4, 2015: EBCNPS will be holding its annual Native Plant Fair on October 3 and 4, selling over 20,000 individual native plants to gardeners, restorationists, and families.
EBCNPS and Native Here Nursery host East Bay residents to celebrate a wide variety of local native plants and nature-themed creations from several of the Bay Area’s most talented artists. Sunday, October 4, we feature family day, including live music with the Possum Family Singers and fun and adventure activities for children, including face painting, mask decorating, and a plant treasure hunt for children.
