Date: Saturday, July 27, 2013
Time: 3:00PM - 5:00PM
Location: Arbor Terrace and Blaksley Library
For its third year, the Wine and Cheese Botanic Lecture Series is bringing together some new and familiar friends for talks about our local ecology and built environment. 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 very our own SBBG. 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, so please reserve early. Consider introducing a friend to the Garden and invite them to join you at one or more of these fascinating talks.
A Pictorial History of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden
with Betsy Collins, SBBG Director of Horticulture
Join us as we explore the Garden's treasure trove of historic images depicting the evolution of the Garden and Mission Canyon from the early 1900s to the middle of the century with Betsy Collins, the Garden's Director of Horticulture. Meet some of the forward-thinking, talented, and dedicated Santa Barbarians that transformed an old pasture and olive orchard into the first public garden devoted to California native plants. The Garden's rich and varied history can be fully illustrated now that our 85-year archive of images has been digitized. Changes through the years in both the landscapes and hemlines are fascinating to see. Learn more about the SBBGPhotos Digital Image Project
This lecture will begin with a tasting and presentation by Pali Wine Co.
