The Books 

We lost our good friend and longtime Cal Hort plant aficionado, Ted Kipping in 2019. We are selling Ted’s extensive library at very reasonable prices in order to get them into the hands of people who will use and enjoy them as much as Ted did. There are books about nature, gardening, travel, and botany, priced to sell, to be used and appreciated.Many of these were not offered at our first sale in February 2020.

Cash, checks, and PayPal only  (Sorry no credit cards except through PayPal)

We need volunteers

to help set up, sell and clean up on the day of the sale, and transport plants if needed.

Volunteers will receive a voucher for twelve plant drawing tickets to use at one or more future in-person Cal Hort meetings of your choice. Thank you to those who have already volunteered; we appreciate you all! 

If you would like to volunteer, please email Ellen Frank at
