In its third year, the Wine and Cheese Botanic Lecture Series is bringing together some new and familiar friends for talks about our local ecology. All events take place this spring-summer at the Garden on Saturday afternoons from 3-5 pm. This year’s topics will include everything from bears to fennel, sustainable building and artful landscaping, to vanishing wild lands and a pictorial history of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Each lecture begins with delicious appetizers and a tasting and conversation with one of our local sponsoring vintners in the Garden’s Arbor Terrace. Lecture attendance is limited, early reservations are strongly encouraged. Below is a complete schedule of the upcoming series:
