Sauslito team wins Haagen-Dazs-Dazs-UC Davis 'Bee Friendly' garden competition

DAVIS, Calif. ─ It's a honey of a garden, the judges unanimously agreed.

The Sausalito-based Sibbett Group created a series of interconnected gardens with such names as "Honeycomb Hideout," "Nectar Nook" and "Pollinator Patch" to win the international bee-friendly garden design competition, a gift to the University of California, Davis, from the Hagen-Dazs brand.

"The garden will be a campus destination."

Kimsey served as one of eight judges who unanimously selected the design from among 30 entries, submitted from as far away as England. The winni
