Item Description

Point Reyes National Seashore Association is happy to partner again with our friends at Petaluma Seed Bank, Point Reyes Compost, Mostly Natives, and Point Reyes Building Supply Center for a special auction package geared to Bay Area and Northern Caliornia home gardeners who would like to create or transform their outdoor space into a native garden, vegetable patch or special oasis.

As development replaces natural habitats, planting native gardens can provide a critical bridge to nearby remaining wild lands and provide a buffer for wildlife. By growing native you support the local ecology by using less water, little to no fertilizer, little to no pesticides, less pruning and less of your time--all while enjoying the supreme beauty of a garden in its most "natural" state.

Like any well maintained garden, starting with the right soil is imperative. That's why this package provides the winning bidder with one bag each of Point Reyes Compost's OMRI Listed Bob's Best, OMRI Listed Double Doody, Poulet Poo, Mary Jane's Blend, and Point Reyes Greenhouse Blend, or equivalents. 

West Marin-made Point Reyes compost is full of microbial life that will nourish your garden patch and can help build your soil structure, increase and improve soil nutrient retention and water holding capacity, help to sequester carbon production, reduce the need for fertilizers, and lower greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants. You will also receive product info on each of the compost types, a bar of their gardener's whey soap, a t-shirt and a hoodie. Plus, compost experts Teddy and Rhonda are happy to answer any questions about your garden needs.

To make sure you have the right tools you need for your gardening project, our friends at Point Reyes Building Supply Center have donated a $75 gift certificate to source tools, plants or other garden supplies. Located in historic downtown Point Reyes Station and serving other local community since 1964, they feature a huge selection of hardware, building supplies and local nostalgia. Check out their old-fashioned candy counter just inside the front door!

Our friends at Petaluma Seed Bank have provided the winning bidder with a $250 gift certificate good for purchases at their Petaluma location, along with the latest edition of The Whole Seed Catalog.

Petaluma Seed Bank is home to Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company's West Coast location, offering over 1,200 varieties of non-GMO heirloom seeds, tools, books, and hundreds of local hand-made gifts and food items in Petaluma, California. With two stories of retail space, they offer classes and more to enhance any gardener's knowledge and skills.

One of our newest partners, Mostly Natives, is offering a $50 gift certificate, growers of drought-tolerant plants and coastal natives since 1984. Mostly Natives is under new management and is now open in Point Reyes Station!

Put down roots and beautify your garden, home or office, bid today!
