Thank you to everyone who attended our Launch Tour on May 14, 2022.
You can also enjoy this VIRTUAL TOUR of our gardens and nursery below.
Home Ground Habitats is located in the ‘horse country’ area of Marin at 1875 Indian Valley Road Novato. From 101 take the De Long Ave exit, and head West over the freeway after Novato Blvd De Long becomes Diablo Ave.
Large old ranchettes, open spaces, and networks of horseback and hiking trails are all close by. On our nearly one acre we have gardens that are vibrantly alive and beautiful. Butterflies, bees, and birds abound, bringing the natural world to a landscape that provides sustenance for humans.
The demonstration gardens at Home Ground showcase a sustainable, organic approach to creating a truly California-friendly landscape using native plants, other drought-tolerant Mediterranean species to increase the bio-diversity. Winding gravel pathways lead to hedgerows, wildflower meadows, a small fruit orchard, a vegetable garden, edible and medicinal California natives, pollinator plants, a ‘Monarch Way Station, and numerous larval host plants for other common garden butterflies. The whole property is a ‘pesticide-free zone’.
