Grubb & Nadler Nurseries Tour

Join us for a private tour of Grubb & Nadler Nurseries (formerly East West Trees). They grow a wide array of palms; tons of succulents and proteaceous plants and staple subtropicals like strelitzia and bambusa; select perennials, trees, shrubs, and bromeliads. The nursery is set in the bucolic Rainbow Valley in a bowl of chaparral-covered granite hills. You will have the opportunity to select plants for purchase during the tour and pick up and pay for plants at the end of the tour.

Our tour guide will be our November meeting speaker, Gregg Ogenorth, Head Grower at the nursery. The event is limited to the first 30 people to register and the tour starts at 9:30 AM.

Tour schedule:

  • 9:30 AM, arrive at East West Trees, yard 1
  • 9:30 - 10:30 AM, guided walking tour
  • 10:30 - 11 AM, check-out for shoppers

Please Note: 

  • By attending you agree to waive all claims against SDHS and any entities associated with the visiting the nursery or related to participation and travel to and from the nursery.
  • No pets or strollers are allowed. The nursery is not handicapped accessible.
  • Dress for dusty/muddy (some puddles due to irrigation) and uneven surfaces -- there's no paving in the yards, lots of equipment on the ground, and it's important that people wear closed shoes like hiking boots that they would wear for a day hike with puddles.
  • There is very little shade or shelter apart from the bigger plants (mostly palm trees), so be prepared for roasting sunshine, hot, stuffy shade houses, and take a full water bottle. People will be able to refill their water bottles there.
  • Toilets are limited to port-a-potties. 
  • Carpooling is recommended.
  • Please show up prepared, not wearing sandals.
