The UC Master Gardener Fall Garden Market plant sale offers a bounty of winter vegetable and flower seedlings plus beautiful low-water succulents. They all thrive in our cool winter conditions and will keep your garden producing year round. Come get inspired! Arrive early for best selection.
UC Master Gardeners will be hosting educational talks, children’s activities, a Green Elephant sale, and an “Ask a Master Gardener” booth where you can ask questions and bring in samples for diagnosis.
In honor of all of these wonderful things that differentiate the cooperative business model, October has been declared National Co-op Month. It gives nods to the more than 29,000 co-ops across the country, from natural food stores, to banks, manufacturers and everything in between. Local, trusted and serving you.
8th Annual Coop Tour is Coming!

So, for the 2019 Tour De Coop let’s expand our tour to also focus on lifestyle and community …and ways that allows each of us to live healthier lives for ourselves and also for the planet.
