Our corridor of California habitat supporting landscapes in Sebastopol starts at the Sebastopol Chamber of Commerce and the Sebastopol Historical Society then on to the Perennial Meadow at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts.  Take our tour self lead tour here: Sebastopol Tour

Sebastopol Chamber of Commerce Garden

This small landscape shows how you can have a vibrant habitat garden in a pretty small (and busy) spot.  We started here and this garden has evolved over the past years.  We have a few plants from the Arizona desert called Autumn Sages.  But that's OK, native pollinators don't know about boarders!  These plants bloom all year round and provide nectar for hummingbirds when not much else is blooming.
