Upcoming Events:

  • San Francisco Botanical Garden's Mediterranean Hill Tour - June 12, 2016
    Join us for a visit to the new Mediterranean garden at San Francisco Botanical Garden at Strybing! The newly planted Mediterranean Garden is located on the hill and was designed and planted by Jason Martinez, the city gardener in charge of this area. We will tour the area and perhaps also check in on the Australian section that has grown up in the past few years. Following this tour will be a group lunch at a nearby restaurant.
