Billed as the greatest garage sale on the coast, and widely known for its quality items, fair prices and friendly service — this annual favorite offers everything from garden supplies to antiques and collectibles. Best of all, when you buy something, you’re supporting the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. This year’s sale takes place at the Gardens on Saturday July 14th, 8 am-4 pm.
Friends of the Gardens, (FOG) is a separate non-profit support organization for Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. FOG supports the Gardens’ development and is the largest contributor to the growth of the Garden, raising over $175,000 since it was formed in 1997. The money has been used to create the plaza at the Gardens’ entrance, the restrooms on the bluff, electric carts for disabled visitors and many other things that are crucial to the visitor experience. FOG raises money through the annual Pack-Rat Sale and other events.
