Regular events at Peckerwood not just seasonal anymore!
We have traditionally had a series of spring and fall open days along with a few other fundraising events during those two seasons, with little occurring during summer and winter. We at Peckerwood feel it is time to offer year-around opportunities for education and enjoyment of all the gardens has to offer. Our monthly Peckerwood Insiders’ Tours which debuted in early June are only the beginning. We debut our year round, monthly schedule for open days with our first summer Open Day on July 23rd. Some modifications will be made to to these events for comfort due to weather extremes during this season.
John’s garden in winter is arguably one of the most beautiful times of the year, though seldom enjoyed by most until now. Though summer can be hot, there is still much to enjoy here in the cooler shade areas. Please check our calendar regularly as we may add special events, lectures, and other one time opportunities as available in the upcoming months.
Another regular feature we will be implementing are 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 other possibilities of interest. Our opening lecture will be July 22nd.
Please keep watching for updates to our events calendar and expect many exciting opportunities to begin in upcoming weeks, including the third annual Taking Root Luncheon on October 20th.
Schedule a Garden Tour
Group tours of Peckerwood Garden may be scheduled for any time of year. Have lunch under the trees before or after your tour.
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.
