Take a self-guided tour of some spectacular private home gardens in the East Bay Hills-a fundraiser for the Aesthetic Pruners Association. Featured will be one of Leslie's gardens, the Mitchell Japanese home and garden, in the Oakland hills landscaped by Shigiru Namba (builder/designer for Larry Ellison's garden in Woodside)and pruned/designed by Leslie over twenty years. This is a true, sukiya living environment, with both home and garden built by Japanese craftsmen and maintained with care. Leslie will be available in person for questions and to sign copies of her memoir. Pruning demos and opportunity to talk to the long-term designers of these gardens part of tour. Perhaps have a quick sandwhich at https://www.fourneebakery.com or sit-down lunch at http://www.rickandanns.com and make a delicious day of it? Join this tour to see some beautifully pruned gardens-full of ideas.
