Pick up some fresh ideas for sustainable gardening during weekly open hours in the Ranch Garden, The Huntington's urban agriculture site. An Open House is held every Saturday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Visitors can self-tour the site and talk to experts from the L.A. Master Gardener Program, who are on hand to answer questions and offer seasonal tips on a wide range of topics: composting, mulching, pruning fruit trees, planting row crops, container gardening, attracting native pollinators, and much more.

The weekly Open House is free with general admission to The Huntington. The Ranch Garden is located northwest of the Children's Garden. From the Teaching Greenhouse, follow the signs to the site. (Cancelled in the event of rain.)

ABOUT THE RANCH GARDEN: The Huntington's Ranch Garden is an urban agricultural project that explores optimal approaches to gardening in our regional ecosystems and climate: the semi-arid landscapes of Southern California. Part classroom and part research lab, the Ranch Garden draws inspiration from The Huntington's and the region's agricultural heritage, while making connections with gardeners, native plant enthusiasts, landscape professionals, educators, and researchers throughout Southern California.

The Ranch Garden includes a mixture of edible landscapes, in which fruit trees mingle with native shrubs, perennial herbs, and reseeding annuals. Small annual crop planting beds are interspersed throughout, with a concentrated row crop area at the core.

While not open to daily visitors except during the Saturday Open Houses, the Ranch Garden hosts a wide variety of programs year-round for students, adults, teachers, professionals, and home gardeners.
