Summer + Fall Events at Berkeley Hort

Mark your calendars and make plans to join us in August, September, and October for several special weekend events at Berkeley Hort. As the spring and summer planting season starts to wind down, we’ll be taking time to celebrate 95 years of putting down roots in the neighborhood with parties featuring some of our favorite things, and we’re inviting all of our favorite customers. Stay tuned for more details. Here is a preview of what we’ve got in the works:

Art in the Nursery

Come meet local artists and admire their artwork in a gardenlike setting where both the art and the garden are for sale! Find your muse while enjoying live music and more.

Tomato Tasting
