Arboretum gala May 4

Who spiked the punch at the LA Arboretum?

Join us Friday evening, May 4, to find out – with tequila cocktails by
Nobleza Tequila and wine flights offered by Phantom Rivers Winery,
accompanied by appetizers from Claud & Company Catering and the
Peacock Café. Not to mention our Beer for Books booth, where all
proceeds will go toward new books for the Arboretum Library.

Accompanied by big band music from the Big Band Theory, it is the
perfect backdrop for enjoying a stroll through our garden sculpture
exhibits: Earth Dreams – Beyond the Sculptural Landscapes, where you
will also have a chance to meet the artists. The Ladybugs pictures
above are an example of some of the amazing art you will see.

The fun continues on Saturday and Sunday, May 5-6, with plenty of
kids’ activities, live entertainment throughout the day, food trucks,
guided tours through our beautiful gardens, and much more!

There is a fantastic lineup of educational Q&A sessions from top
garden experts. These forums feature topics on everything from
bee-keeping and backyard chickens, maximizing your edible garden
production to drought-friendly ornamental landscaping.

And don’t forget your shopping opportunities! Our Marketplace will
have over 50 vendors with a full array of garden accessories, and over
25 Plant Vendors & Societies offering unique plants and great
information. Our Arboretum Gift Shop will be offering special
discounts on all merchandise as well.

GROW! will also be the first opportunity to see our newly designed
Garden for All Seasons – a demonstration garden of cutting-edge water
harvesting techniques and urban homesteading principles.
