2017 OAEC Nursery Season

NEW in 2017!  The OAEC Nursery will be open every weekend April-October! 

April 1st – October 31st, Saturdays and Sundays, 10am-5pm

(closed on Easter weekend April 15th-16th) 

While our Annual Plant Sale Events are focused mainly on annual starts for planting out your seasonal garden, these additional weekends between sales are an opportunity to peruse our vast inventory of perennial plants throughout the season.  We boast the widest selection of perennial food crops in the Bay Area for permaculture design, as well as many rare and unusual medicinal and culinary herbs, habitat plants for pollinators, and ornamentals for drought tolerant landscapes. We also specialize in Salvias, with a collection of 35 species to choose from! All offerings are propagated from plants in our Mother Garden and Nursery.

Bring us your pots!


We’d love to reuse your gallon pots, square 4-inch pots, or square 17-inch flats (no others, please) that are in good condition. Thanks for bringing them along when you come to the OAEC Nursery!

Other sustainability practices include:

  • The use of EnviroStake, a polypropylene-derived pot tag that is curbside recyclable and biodegradable.
  • A commitment to being 100% California Certified Organic – including our ornamental plants and our potting mixes, amendments and foliar sprays. We are the only 100% Organic nursery in the Bay Area.
