The Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour is seeking volunteers who will spend a morning or afternoon greeting tour participants and answering questions at this native plant garden tour. Thirty gardens located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties will be showcased on this tour, which will take place on Sunday, May 6, 2018. Benefits to volunteers include invitations to Garden Soirees, in which tour gardens are open for leisurely, private viewing by hosts and volunteers; a pre-tour meeting with the owner and private tour of the garden you will be staffing; a guaranteed tour reservation for the half day you are free; a Bringing Back the Natives Garden Tour t-shirt; and, perhaps best of all, heartfelt thanks for helping to educate the general public about the many pleasures and benefits of gardening with California native plants. Gardens will be assigned on a first-come basis. To volunteer, please complete the main Tour registration form. For more information, please e-mail Kathy Kramer at Kathy AT KathyKramerConsulting.net, or call 510-236-9558 between 9am and 7pm.
