Vendors

Talented vendors who offer nature-related items will enrich the 2013 Plant Fair. Dianne Lake will be back by popular demand offering jewelry and photographs of local nature scenes; Dianne is also the primary author of the East Bay Chapter’s publication on the East Bay’s rare and unusual flora. Susan Holtslander, an artist and potter in addition to being a Native Here volunteer, will offer her recently announced line of delightful pottery designed to hold native plants at home. Also returning this year to the Plant Fair is Angela Hunkler bringing a new set of pastels and watercolors based on plants and other nature subjects.

New to us this year are two artists from the Martinez area. Stephen Lao and friends will offer air plants and succulent arrangements as well as ceramic planters and garden decorations. Dorrie Langley will show her butterfly and dragonfly themed offerings. Jess Kolman will showcase t-shirts, bags, and cards that celebrate the joy of native gardening.
