What fun! We welcome Pete Veilleux of East Bay Wilds to speak on the “FAB FOUR: Buckwheat, Ceanothus, Manzanita and Sage” at our June meeting. Pete started a garden service in 2004 which morphed into East Bay Wilds - he began propagating native plants to use in his landscaping business and people began clamoring for the plants. Eat Bay Wilds specializes in the use of native-plant material for residential and commercial self-sustaining landscapes. Pete will bring some of the “fab four” plants to illustrate his talk and they will be available for sale after the meeting - cash or check only! He may also bring a few of East Bay Wilds’ own plant introductions. East Bay Wilds is located at 2777 Foothill Blvd in Oakland - if you’d like to visit, phone him @ 510-409-5858 to make an appt, as he is usually out in the field. In addition to plants, there are benches, planters, antiques, etc for sale at the nursery.
Guests are welcome to attend - fee is $5. Judy Hogan, Program Chair
