Happy New Year from PHIG!

Happy New Year and welcome to Pleasant Hill Instructional Garden’s (PHIG) news site and blog. Here you’ll be able to find regular updates about Garden happenings, the PHIG Quarterly Newsletter archive, discussion forums, blog posts, and pictures of the beautiful drought tolerant Instructional Garden.


PHIG would not be able to operate without the many volunteers that spend hours pruning, weeding, composting, and much more at our weekly Garden Work Parties. Each year PHIG honors special individual and group volunteers who have gone above and beyond volunteering many hours and contributing to several projects at PHIG over the year. Soon we will announce the 2016 honorees, so be sure to check back.


Save the Date and mark your calendars for Earth Day at PHIG on Saturday, April 30, 2017. Enjoy a day in the Garden with local vendors, talks by local experts, a garden tour, interactive Garden activities, and light snacks and refreshments.


If you’re a vendor that would like to have a booth at PHIG’s Earth Day Celebration, email Monika at for more information.
