Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
What to do with yourself?... that makes you feel better and also helps to keep the garden maintained! During the Shelter in Place being in a garden, being outdoors, and especially in a wildlife habitat helps to relieve stress and boredom. At the same time, know you are helping PHIG and your community!
We practice social distancing and ask you to stay at home if you are not feeling well. Please bring your own face mask, water, gloves, and if you prefer, hand sanitizer. We do have soap and water on hand for you to feel safe.
Our vision is to build PHIG into a community recognized resource with a water conservation demonstration garden. What was a community eyesore is being transformed into a natural and beautiful wildlife habitat that attracts birds, beneficial insects, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators.
PHIG provides a living laboratory for all students, of all ages, including students at the Pleasant Hill Education Center and Contra Costa County Master Gardeners
PHIG uses no pesticides or herbicides that degrade our air, soil, and water quality
PHIG is also simply a place to sit, relax and enjoy nature.
The mission of the Pleasant Hill Instructional Garden is to educate students, staff, and community members on the need for water conservation and to promote wildlife habitat with a demonstration garden using mulch, drought-tolerant and native plantings and without pesticide use.

Begun in 2007, PHIG provides a living laboratory for all students and specifically for students at the Pleasant Hill Education Center and Contra Costa County Master Gardeners. PHIG uses no pesticides that degrade our water quality and is also simply a place to sit and enjoy nature.
Community service and garden work parties help to maintain, renew and develop the garden. Join us in the garden or help us in other ways!
