Farm Tour: San Diego Gardener
Heeding the call of the San Diego Gardener, we opened our farm gate for the second year in a row to this enthusiastic group of passionate gardeners. With 2,150 plant species, San Diego County has more species of plants than any county in the contiguous United States. The geography of the county ranging from salt marshes, lagoons, coastal sage scrub, grasslands, chaparral, oak woodlands, stream sides, mixed conifer forests, freshwater marshes and meadows, to desert makes gardening here fascinating and complex. The San Diego Gardener is dedicated to educating residents about gardening in this rich horticulture environment through their Facebook Page discussions, activities, and events.
Given the abundance of South African and Australian flowers and foliage being grown here in San Diego County, having this group of over 75 tour the farm and experience our day to day activities is a natural fit. With the perfect mix of Proteaceae, we knew it would be the just the place for them to capture some garden inspiration.
