MBBG is a 501c3 non-profit organization. Our mission is to promote a revolution of Earth-friendly gardens in the South Bay and your support helps make that happen!

MBBG's demonstration garden is located in Polliwog Park. It showcases California native plants and is a tool used when working with volunteers including students, seniors, disabled adults, parents, scouts, and work-place groups. The garden is also a great place to visit and picnic. MBBG maintains an educational website, offers free gardening classes in spring and fall, and participates in local events. The all-volunteer run organization thanks you for your generosity!

By providing your address we can mail you a membership card which can be used to receive discounts at local nurseries. 

We are a small non-profit organization run by volunteers. We do not share contact information with any person, organization, or entity, without expressed consent.
