Wildheart Gardens provides landscaping and garden maintenance. Our landscaping practices benefit our clients and also the environment. We use local native pollinators, interesting vegetables, fruits, medicinals, culinary and Mediterranean plants and organic products. We implement water-harvesting techniques such as rainwater, greywater and earthworks like swales to strive to create landscapes that are not only beautiful but also functional and productive.
Located on a hill in the Fruitvale District in Oakland, we are busy propagating seasonal plants including vegetables, culinary and medicinal herbs, native pollinators, fruit trees and mediterranean plants. We are open to the public by appointment and hold a monthly plant sale usually the first Saturday of the month.
