Alexis from Gold Finch Designs will lead a neighborhood plant tour.  We'll start at the Tool Lending Library and head out for a short trip around South Berkeley.  Alexis will explain how to identify plants and share some maintenance tips that you can do at home with tools from the Tool Library. 

Please wear a mask to this outdoor event.  Thank you to the Friends of the Library for their generous support of Library Programming.
