Harvey's Garden at Blackie's Pasture
Blackie’s Pasture Garden in Tiburon (now known as Harvey’s Garden in honor of former UC Marin Master Gardener Harvey Rogers) was started in March 1995, at the suggestion of the Tiburon Peninsula Foundation, on approximately 0.05-acre in a former parking area. Now it is tended mainly by UC Marin Master Gardeners.
