Event Date: Apr 18, 2019 10:34 PM - 10:34 PM
Every Saturday, 10am-1pm. Ranch Open House. Stop by The Huntington's urban agriculture site during our weekly open house and pick up some fresh ideas for sustainable gardening. Volunteers from the University of California Los Angeles County Master Gardener program will be on hand to answer questions and offer seasonal tips. The half-acre Ranch Garden—part classroom and part research lab—draws inspiration from The Huntington's agricultural heritage to explore optimal approaches to gardening in Southern California's semi-arid climate. The mission of the Ranch is to reconnect people with their food in beautiful and livable ways, inspiring visitors to incorporate edibles into the landscape of their home gardens. Visit huntington.org/ranchgarden/ to learn more. From the Teaching Greenhouse, follow signs to the site. Repeats every Saturday. Cancelled in the event of rain.
Saturday, 4/13, 11am-3pm. Family Day Celebrating Planet Earth. Earth Day is coming up April 22. Get into the spirit with a day of family fun in celebration of the planet we all call home. Learn all about plants and pollination; become an eco-sleuth and investigate the ecosystems in the gardens that animals and other living things inhabit; and enjoy an all-ages concert (at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.) with the early education musicians from Play Music.
Thursday, 4/18, 2:30pm, Ahmanson Room, Brody Botanical Center. Garden Talk & Plant Sale: Beyond Cactus: Green Gardens That Don't Break the Water Bank.
