Posted by Len Gilbert on September 22, 2008

This Saturday is the Piedmont Goes Green fundraiser party for the Piedmont Elementary tri-school fund, and coming up is another green-themed fundraiser, this one for Crocker Highlands Elementary School.

Shades of Green: A Crocker Highlands Home & Garden Tour

Come enjoy an exclusive opportunity to view seven very special homes and gardens in the charming, tree-lined Crocker Highlands Neighborhood of Oakland. The self-guided walking tour takes place on Sunday, October 5, 2008 from 10 AM to 4 PM.

In addition to the tour, there will be a Green Design Expo, held on the school grounds from 10 am to 3pm, highlighting eco-friendly construction and landscaping techniques and giving the public access to professionals knowledgeable about sustainable products and design. Al fresco dining will be available throughout the day. The Green Design Expo is free and open to the public.

This event is a PTA fundraiser for the benefit of Crocker Highlands Elementary, one of Oakland’s most diverse and successful schools. All proceeds will fund student enrichment programs.
