Miridae Mobile Nursery at Sierra 2 Center

September 25 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join us at the truck at the front entrance to Sierra 2 Center at 24th Street!

Load up on hard-to-find California Native plants and high-quality garden tools used by the professionals. Learn more about some of the plants that will be on the truck at bloomcalifornia.org

The Miridae Mobile Nursery is a modified box truck available for on-site visits to help people engage with their gardens safely in self-isolation. They have an assortment of native plants for sale as well as some of their favorite garden tools and supplies and hand-crafted pottery for you to create and irrigate your new garden.

Come shop the truck and learn about our new Native Plant Demonstration Garden at Sierra 2 Center.

Become a Garden Volunteer

Sat Aug 21, 2021: Help Clear the Grass
8:00am – 12:00pm

We will scrape off all the grass and weeds from the garden area. Miridae will bring some tools but feel free to bring a shovel and gloves. Remember to bring water, sunblock, and a mask. We will need volunteers swing by and pull weeds as they pop up over the next 6 weeks. We will also install some signage about why we are using this dirt-patch method to prepare the space.

Sat Oct 16, 2021: Volunteer Workday: Install irrigation
8:00am – 12:00pm
Help us install drip irrigation as we convert sprinklers to drip lines.

Sat Oct 30, 2021: Volunteer Workday: Planting and Mulching
8:00am – 12:00pm
It’s our big Planting and Mulching day! Help us get plants into the ground! Remember to bring gloves, water, sunblock, a mask, and perhaps a shovel or spade.
