Buying Local Veggies While Drinking Local Coffee in a Garden Nursery
This is my favorite place to spend a summer morning or evening whenever I'm in Groveland, California. The little town on the way to Yosemite via the northwest gate and Tioga Pass has many unique offerings but, the best has to be Mountain Sage Nursery. It is so much more than a nursery, it is a community building institution.
In July, my mom and I like to get coffee in the morning, have a chat among the wildflowers, then browse the farmer's market before the crowds descend.
Also, during the summer, Mountain Sage hosts musicians from near and far and invites neighbors and travelers to dance in its tiny, natural amphitheater among the plants.
