Regular events at Peckerwood not just seasonal anymore!
Traditionally, Peckerwood Garden has been accessible to the public during a series of spring and fall open days and infrequent fundraising events during those seasons. We are now pleased to announce that we are offering year-round opportunities for education and enjoyment of all the garden has to offer. We debuted our monthly Peckerwood Insider’s Tours in June and are planning more events with our first summer Open Day on July 23rd. It’s hot in the garden in the summer but we’ll modify summer tours to accommodate the extreme climate. Please check our calendar regularly as we may add special events, lectures, and other one-time opportunities as they arise in the upcoming months.
We are also offering regular monthly evening lectures conducted by knowledgeable Peckerwood staff and volunteers, as well as local or visiting experts. Topics will include various aspects of horticulture, botany, garden design, plant collecting adventures, and many others. Our first Evening at Peckerwood Lecture will be Friday, July 22nd.
Our third-annual Taking Root Luncheon is coming up on October 20th. This year’s keynote speaker will be landscape designer, Deborah Nevins, Principal of Deborah Nevins & Associates. You can order your tickets here.

Peckerwood Garden — A Natural Treasure
Peckerwood Garden is one of America’s most remarkable garden environments, an award-winning, beautiful space that is also a living laboratory to learn about rare and unusual plants. Located at the convergence of three climatic zones, it features a collection of more than 3,000 plants from Mexico, Asia, and the United States, many of which are no longer found in the wild. The garden has been a testing ground for plants that are beautiful as well as durable under demanding growing conditions and therefore suitable for communities throughout the region as we respond to climate change.
