Following the excitement of the BCBA-sponsored parade, join us on Forest Street, where the unmistakable red and white El Camino will be parked, beckoning you to explore our exquisite selection of over 200 California native plants.

Transform Your Garden, Support Education

By participating in our plant sale, you not only beautify your gardens with indigenous flora but also play a pivotal role in supporting local pollinators and wildlife. Each purchase contributes directly to the Fred and Roberta McPherson Environmental Education Grant for Teachers and the SLV Teacher’s Art Fund, initiatives dedicated to enriching classroom experiences for educators and students alike.

Discover the Benefits of Native Plants

The advantages of incorporating native plants into your garden are manifold. Not only do they attract and sustain local wildlife, but they also demand less water and maintenance, thereby fostering sustainable gardening practices. Moreover, native plants bolster biodiversity, fortify ecosystem health, and preserve the rich natural heritage of our region, cultivating vibrant and resilient garden ecosystems.

See the Impact of Your Support

Last year, thanks to the generosity of supporters like you, the McPherson Grant empowered science teachers Patty Hayes and Hilde Legard to establish weather stations at Boulder Creek and San Lorenzo Valley Elementary Schools. These stations are invaluable tools for educating students about climate change and environmental sciences.  

This year, with the unwavering support of the VWC Native Habitat Restoration Committee, students at Boulder Creek Elementary will embark on an exciting journey to transform outdoor spaces into pollinator gardens. These gardens will serve as living classrooms, nurturing an environmentally conscious curriculum and fostering a deep appreciation for native habitat restoration among our youth.
