Where: Turtle Bay’s Plant Nursery
Spring into the gardening season at Festa Botanica, Friday (April 30) and Saturday (May 1) at Turtle Bay’s Plant Nursery! You’ll experience a festive twist to our annual Spring Plant Sale as the Nursery is transformed into a garden marketplace. Food, beer and beverages, music, garden art and antiques, craft and gift vendors – it’s all here, your one-stop, garden-shopping experience. We encourage visitors to bring a wagon to fill with our popular heirloom vegetables, drought-tolerant plants, and hard-to-find perennials, shrubs, and trees. Pick up some California native plants and choose from a wide variety of ornamental grasses. Everything is propagated and grown here in our Nursery and acclimated to Redding’s challenging climatic conditions. Get your garden going and have fun doing it at this unique spring fundraising event. No admission charge. For more information, call (530) 242-3169.
