This relatively compact garden in the hills above the university is a delight. Trails lead through areas including California natives, a redwood forest, and a collection of Mediterranean natives. Walking these trails is a treat, especially for northern California gardeners. A glass house maintains tropical plants in a controlled environment. In a growing shed, one can observe carnivorous plants. In a meeting house, classes and sick plant clinics are held. Public events at the garden include a summer series of music in the redwoods, as well as seasonal plant sales. A shop sells plants and books. When possible, a visitor will decide to follow up more than once.
