You are invited to enjoy Patricia Carpenter’s wonderful California native plant garden on a typical cool fall day on November 5, 2023. The garden, a secluded 1-acre wild escape on the slough, is located west of Davis. Started in 2005, it now features about 400 species and cultivars of California native plants.

The garden will be open on November 5, 2023, from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, rain or shine. You can stop by for a self-guided garden ramble (garden maps available for use onsite), and there will be an optional short orientation / Q&A gathering with Patricia at 10:00 am and 12 noon.

RSVP required: Please register here for the event. Admittance is free!
