Annual Events at Quarryhill
|Annual Events at Quarryhill|
Every year Quarryhill hosts various fundraisers, community events, lectures, workshops, special garden walks, an annual plant sale and each spring a special free Earth Day celebration. See the Upcoming Events section for what's ahead this year.
The HortiCulture series, as the name implies, combines elements of horticulture and culture. Examples of past lectures include the construction of the Chinese Garden at the Huntington Botanical Garden; Chinese history in rose cultivation; Zen influence in Asian architecture; botanical meanings in Chinese art.
Sonoma County Master Gardeners give workshops in the spring and summer at Quarryhill which focus on more local gardening topics such as Drip Irrigation Basics, Gardening for Year-round Color, and Container Gardening.
