The answer? Our kids.
What's at stake? Their planet.

Come prepared to shop
from great vendors including: Narsai David Foods, the Garden Bookstore, Paula Skene Designs, Raven+Rose, and Urban Farmgirls! These vendors are graciously donating a portion of their proceeds to Garden Feast.
The SFBGS Nursery Volunteers spend countless hours propagating and caring for the sometimes very rare and special plants we offer for the Garden Feast Silent Auction. Over 50 amazing plants will be available for bidding! We’re putting together other sumptuous auction lots: spa treatments, local honey, fine dining, wine and other items including rare pottery and garden accessories.
Ready Your Paddles...
New this year we are adding an exciting live auction as part of the luncheon program. Our trustees have carefully selected some fine lots of rare wines for auction. And two priceless tour experiences have been created for you and your guests – one includes a tour of our magnolias in bloom, the other focuses on succulents.
The FUND-A-NEED portion of our Live Auction seeks to raise $40,000 to provide staffing, a garden intern to assist, supplies, port-a-potties, and buses for our Children's Garden.
