Through the Garden Gate: A Tour and Talk

Join us for a very special members-only event focused on gardening through climate change. The Arboretum and Botanic Garden and the Center for Agroecology/UCSC Farm are teaming up to offer a unique tour of the best of both renowned facilities. At the Arboretum, docents will highlight unique collections such as the Succulent Garden and the Australia Garden. We will then cross the path into the UCSC Farm to enjoy breathtaking views of the ocean and the farm fields as you learn about the Center for Agroecology’s research, innovations, and mission to transform the food system. The tour will begin at the top of the Arboretum parking lot. After touring the facilities, you will be treated to two brief presentations from the executive directors of both programs on how the Arboretum and Farm are addressing and adapting to climate change. 

Coffee, tea, and pastries will be provided. Attendance is limited to 60 in order to ensure an intimate tour for all. You MUST be a member of either the Friends of the Farm & Garden, the Friends of the Arboretum, or both to register for this special event.
