A Walk Through Time w/ Garden Curator Brian Kemble
Saturday, September 8, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am$20.00 – $25.00
A look at the Garden’s past, present, and future. Since its inception in 1972, Ruth’s Garden has evolved and transformed over the years based on plant life and adaptability. New plants grow in the same spot that a large Agave once stood, and at times plants will sprout from seeds that were planted decades ago. This tour offers a chance to see the Garden then and now. Brian Kemble, who has been at the Garden for 38 years, will lead you down the Garden’s paths showing examples of Ruth’s plantings from years ago compared to their current state. Find out the method behind her planting arrangements and her overall philosophy in creating a beautiful xeriscape. This tour takes place on Ruth’s birthday and is a way to honor her, and learn from the example she created for all of us.
