Oakland's Montclair Village homeowners and neighbors have two special events to choose from this weekend.  The first is an opportunity to help in turning the Montclair Library grounds into a beautiful spot to visit.  This Saturday, November 16th, (and again on November 23rd),volunteers are encouraged to attend Community Gardening Days for Montclair Library.  The goal is to turn the present backyard of the library into a very special garden--one with low water use, bird and butterfly friendly plants, and featuring native plants. Volunteers are encouraged to bring labor, tools, benches, birdhouse, plants, etc. and join others from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on both Saturdays.  If you don't know what to bring, there is a list available for your reference.  Additionally, funds are needed for compost and plants, so, if you can't attend, donations are welcome.  So be sure to consider joining your neighbors in adding this amazing addition to Montclair's present attractions.  Information and all the details are available by contacting Lynne Cutler, Library Branch Manager at (510)482-7810, or lcutler@oaklandlibrary.org. The library is located at 1687 Mountain Boulevard. 

Also scheduled for this Sunday, November 17th is the very popular Montclair Village Sunday Farmer's Market.  Located around La Salle and Moraga avenues, this market features fresh organic produce and wonderfully prepared food from approximately 40 area farmers and food purveyors.  There is so much to choose from, and it's variety is a delight, allowing one to shop and nosh at the same time.  The good news is that free parking is available at the Village Garage at the top of La Salle Avenue.  It is open from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.. each Sunday.
