The seasons are changing and maybe you're considering adding more plants to your garden. This weekend is the perfect time to find plants for your gardening projects. Join the SacValley California Native Plant Society (CNPS) for their annual Fall Native Plant Sale on Saturday, September 22 through Sunday, September 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
There will be experts on hand to answer any gardening questions you may have. Both days will feature a free slide show of local native plants inside the Shepard Garden & Arts Center in McKinley Park at 1 p.m.
When you join SacValley CNPS, or renew your membership at the sale, you will be able to choose a one-gallon plant raised at Elderberry Farms Native Plant Nursery, which is a volunteer-run organization run by SacValley CNPS members.
As Sacramentans, we're lucky to have the SacValley CNPS. The SacValley CNPS studies, educates, and conserves California native plants by promoting them for landscape use, protecting them in their natural environment, and expanding the community's knowledge about the benefits of native plant use.
The event is free to the public. Activities will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. through the weekend, September 22 & 23, at Shepard Garden & Arts Center, 3330 McKinley Blvd. in McKinley Park. For more information, visit sacvalley.cnps.org.

Their Demonstration Gardens at the nursery are open to visitors during most daytime hours. Workdays welcome volunteers from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Wednesday.
