DVC Permaculture Class comes to CACG

Bethallyn and her DVC permaculture class came to the garden last Saturday to help and share ideas about Permaculture.  It was wonderful to have everyone walking around the garden discussing ideas and learning from each other.  It was great to see so many people helping and working together.  It's amazing what can be accomplished when you have so many helping hands.

A big thank you to Bethallyn and her class!   We look forward to the next visit.

Riding the Contra Costa Canal Trail

With the kids becoming experts on their bikes, we've been able to lengthen our run/bike rides on the local trail.

The Contra Costa trail is a great one for easy, rolling runs, riding your bike, or stopping for a snack and the view!

Weekend Trip to Big Trees State Park

We took a trip to Bear Valley for some sledding, and made a pit stop at the Big Trees State Park as well.

Big Trees is just East of Arnold on Highway 4, only a couple of hours from the East Bay.

We had a lot of fun exploring among the trees.
