Mt Diablo Recycling, one of the largest and most efficient recycling facilities in Northern California, is home to the colossal recycling machine “Big Blue.”

Earth Week went so well that we wanted to keep it going for a month.

Join us at the Lafayette Community Garden on a tour of the Mt Diablo Recycling facility on Thursday, May 18 to learn where the stuff in your blue cart goes. Register by May 11 to reserve your spot.

We’re carpooling to keep things green.

Historical Houses Presentation and Tour

Posted on Updated on

 

Saturday, March 25, 2017 | 1:30 – 3:00PM

Learn of our local valley’s history through the chronicles of three old houses from the 1800’s: The Old Yellow House in Orinda, Rodgers Ranch in Pleasant Hill, and the John Muir House in Martinez. The inhabitants of these three houses lived in an original sustainable fashion, initially with wells, gardens, fruit trees, livestock and horses. The houses were miles apart, yet webbed together by an overall similar lifestyle, use of horse and carriage, and some exchange of information and goods.

Wonderful supporter/caretakers will be at the garden to speak about the first two houses, and a special guest from the 1800’s will give his presentation about the John Muir House.

These fun and informative historical presentations will be followed by an optional field trip to the Yellow House in Orinda, hosted by guest speaker James Wright. Information about days and times to make visits to the two other houses will be available at the garden presentation.

Our classes are free. However, a $5 donation is appreciated to support our education programs.
