Steve List and Stefan Strong couldn’t have been more welcoming or informative and the work they and their students have done couldn’t be more impressive. We were especially moved by Steve’s dedication to making horticulture and the gardens a safe place for those students who need one.
We lucked out with beautiful weather , enjoyed seeing many many thriving collections of plants (pollinator gardens, medicinal herb gardens, a whole slew of bearing orchards, a monster pitaya and chickens!) and went home with some lovely lavender plants. Thank you to Steve and Stefan and to those members who made the trek out there. It was definitely worth it.
