One of Pete Veilleux ‘s goals as a landscaper is to help people make the connection between their yards and the greater, wild world around us. He wants people to experience in their own yards the beautiful harmony that we see when exploring the woods, meadows and high rocky outcrops around the Bay. Join Pete for an exploration of some native plants you may not have considered including in your patio and garden.

About Pete Veilleux (in his own words)

East Bay Wilds Native Plant Nursery began as a small gardening service called ‘Pete’s Gardens’ in 2004. I had reached a point where my 17 years in social services both in the USA and throughout Latin America was no longer “cuttin’ the mustard”. Exploring our remaining wild places and gardening with native plants have been passions [obsessions?] of mine since I was a little kid. I had always dreamed of having my own landscape business but didn’t realize there actually were folks interested in native plants until I began propagating things I would find while exploring the woods and hills around the east bay and then giving them away.

East Bay Wilds is a firm which specializes in the use of native plant material for use in residential and commercial landscapes in the East Bay as well as the rest of the San Francisco Bay Area. We design, install and maintain “naturescape” gardens using plants cultivated in our own native plant nursery. The native plant nursery and garden center with a variety of garden furniture, planters, and art is open every
