recently published books, California Native Plants for the Garden and

be either auctioned of sold for the benefit of the IGS?

Germany. We could used a lot more items. Books, household

attention from a new owner perhaps. Your scraggly unusual or hard to find
plant just might be a treasure for someone else.
Please contact Bill Lemke (GARDENERBILL1@AOL,COM

questions or want to make arrangements for a donation. Items can be
brought the day of the meeting. Let me know if you have something to
donate. If you cannot make the meeting, postage for items can be arranged
