Have a great garden?

Bay-Friendly Gardening Program seeks host gardeners

The Bay-Friendly Gardening Program is looking for interesting gardens to feature in its upcoming seventh annual garden tour.

The residential gardens featured in the countywide event exemplify practices that help build healthy soil, protect local watersheds, create wildlife habitat and conserve water.

Bay-Friendly Gardening says it's "an opportunity for native plant enthusiasts, wildlife gardeners, urban food growers and other natural gardeners to share their accomplishments."

Participants receive a compost bin, tote bag, T-shirt and other garden-related gifts.

Applications can be found at or by calling 510-444-SOIL and are due by Aug. 3. The tour date is April 25, 2010.
