The Friends of Sausal Creek (FOSC) will hold their 8th annual native plant sale and open house at the
Joaquin Miller Native Plant Nursery on Sunday, October 20, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Native plant experts
will be available all day to help shoppers pick appropriate plants for their specific planting areas.

The
day’s festivities will include a presentation by Doc Hale on Natural and Cultural History of the East
Bay (11 a.m.), a workshop by Save the Bay’s Doug Serrill on Native Landscaping (1 p.m.), and live
fiddle music at 2 p.m.

Tablers include the Spider Chick and her live arachnids, Alameda County
Master Gardeners, Pollinator Posse, chickens and urban farming, and free face painting.
The FOSC nursery grows natives from locally collected seeds and cuttings, primarily for use in
restoration projects.

The nursery opens to the public only once a year. Don’t miss this chance to stock
up on local native plants at great prices—and to support the Friends of Sausal Creek!
The nursery work occurs on an ongoing basis, mostly by volunteers.

Volunteers interested in helping  before or during the sale should email nursery@sausalcreek.org or call (510) 325-9006.
Directions: The nursery is located in Joaquin Miller Park on Sanborn Road. From Highway 13, go
east on Joaquin Miller Road. Turn left on Sanborn and park near the community center. Follow signs
to the nursery, about ¼ mile.

Sunday, October 20, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
