Give the Gift of Membership

Dec 05, 2017 04:08PM

Located on Bancroft Rd. in Walnut Creek is a world-renowned gem: the Ruth Bancroft Garden & Nursery. The garden features succulents and drought tolerant plants from around the world and is a premier example of just how beautiful sustainable gardening can be. Ruth Bancroft planted the garden in the early ‘70s and is still alive today at the age of 109. The garden offers a place of peace and an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Along with being a wonderful place to visit, there are various workshops and educational programs throughout the year for plant newbies and experts alike. Anyone can join to become a member and enjoy a wide variety of perks, and membership makes the perfect gift for the outdoor enthusiast on your list this holiday season.

For just $40/year you can give someone (or yourself) free admission to the garden for a year. Along with free entry to the Ruth Bancroft Garden, members also enjoy free admission to over 300 reciprocal gardens throughout the country. Members also get a discount at the nursery and price-cuts on workshops and events. Some of the garden’s exclusive events are held just for members, which is another reason why membership is the gift that keeps giving.

If you’re in a bind this season trying to find the perfect gift for the gardener, outdoor lover, or succulent enthusiast in your life, then contact our staff today for the perfect gift. Membership proceeds directly support the garden and serves our community in many meaningful ways. Keep the passion and love of sustainable gardening growing by giving the gift of membership this holiday season!
