green-thumb-works-10-of-12 Green Thumb Works is a landscape maintenance, planting design, and consulting business in the East Bay. We began selling native plants in 2013 to bring gardeners the hard-to-find native annuals and perennials not sold in the big box stores. Our plants are purchased from Devil Mountain Wholesale and are a diverse selection of natives and cultivated varieties from top growers throughout the state.

Our plant inventory is hand-selected and changes seasonally as new varieties become available. Last year, the plant sale went on the road and “popped up” at community festivals, such as Castro Valley Pride, Ashland-Cherryland FamFest, Institute of Urban Homesteading Farm Tour, San Lorenzo HOA Landscape Expo, and Hayward Historical Society Community Day. It was a delight to meet new people, give water-wise planting advice, encourage lawn conversion, and introduce people to the beauty and hardiness of native plants.


We’ll be out in the community again this year so check for schedule and location updates. We support and collaborate with local community greening projects. Our mission is to provide information on the sustainability and habitat value of growing native plants in home landscapes, parks and public spaces, school gardens, community gardens, and urban farms.

Visit our native plant demonstration garden at the Pacific Apparel building (E. 14th Street @ 163rd Ave.) installled in 2014. Monkey flower, buckwheat, yarrow, manzanitas, deer grass, hummingbird fuchsia enhance a former weedy, litter-filled area and provide year round color and interest with minimal maintenance.
