Berkeley Hort

This is a magnificent nursery in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“We are a family-owned retail nursery located directly across the San Francisco Bay from the Golden Gate occupying most of a city block on the north side of Berkeley. We have been blessed with a temperate climate; one where extreme hot or cold is a rarity. Our primary endeavors are to offer quality plants of all types to the general public, to collect and disseminate information on anything garden-related, and to provide a pleasant atmosphere in which to browse an array of horticultural products & accessories. We can provide local delivery, but we are not set up for mail-order purchases. Stop by for a visit!”

He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated.
