Callifornia Native Plant Society - Santa Clara Valley Chapter

Fall 2019 Native Plant Sale

Hi Chapter members and friends,

Our Fall Native Plant Sale is scheduled this year for Saturday, October 19, from 10am to 3pm at our Hidden Villa nursery in Los Altos Hills.  We're asking all of our members who can, to come out and help volunteer for this  annual fund raising event.   Most jobs require no expertise or previous experience. Only positions answering plant questions require plant knowledge. You can choose to work one or two hours or all day. The plant sales are always lots of fun to work, make new friends, stay in touch with old ones, and we provide FREE delicous lunch and snacks.

We'll need volunteers to help run the sale on Saturday, as well as to prepare the nursery before the sale on Friday, October 18th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. See below for specifcis of volunteer positions.

Our nursery is located at 26870 Moody Rd, Los Altos Hills .
