Far Out Flora

Help, We Have to Move!!!


Our Oakland Garden (click for larger pic)

Update: We found a new house one block from Flora Grubb Gardens and are moving in mid-June! Thanks for you all your help everyone!

Long time no blog! We keep talking about it, but time is tight these days. We swear we’ll start again now that we’ve uploaded a million pics. I’ve been loving Instagram for sharing and keeping up with people since having Zoe. Anyways, the owner of our rental here in Oakland (near Mills College) is retiring and moving back in July.  If anyone out there knows of anyone with two bedrooms, preferably a house with garden space available mid-June up until early July send them our way. East Bay, San Francisco, we’re open to many options as long as Max the Border Collie can come with. He’s so smart we can train him to do his business the farthest away from where we hang out easily and he never goes on the garden. We always take great care of our rentals and plant to attract pollinators of all shapes and sizes, along with a little food, succulents and other drought tolerant plants. Matti’s also very handy with little fixes around the house. Please keep an eye out for us as finding a place to live in the Bay Area that accepts dogs is a challenge.


  1. just simply move here to Louisiana.

  2. i just did 3 weeks in Scottsdale, AZ. that’s a liveable city. it only takes 3 grand a week. another 2 weekks in Chandler, AZ,, and all those Saguaro cacti, left me …

  3. This would temporary but maybe you are interested in a short term house sitting if you can’t find anything, it would be temporary, and you would have to figure out your furniture, but I have chickens, a dog and a veggie garden.

  4. If you were looking to buy – we are selling a two bedroom pet friendly craftsman bungalow with a private garden backyard – in Oakland. You could still bike to the Lake Merritt farmers market. http://www.planomatic.com/mls28622 ( I feel so bad exposing my dirt backyard to such an amazing gardener – but I never got the hang of drought tolerant gardening)
