The Ruth Bancroft Garden hosted an amazing June BASH in their beautifully renovated garden just the day after their grand ribbon-cutting ceremony which was facilitated by our Walnut Creek Mayor Cindy Silva. Both the events were attended by a huge group that included our chamber members and ambassadors. They opened their door to a world-renowned 3.5-acre garden, housing a collection of succulents, both unique and beloved, as well as drought-tolerant plants from around the world. The Garden’s founder, Ruth Bancroft, lived to be 109 and was a pioneer in drought-tolerant gardening and the garden is open to the public year-round. Walk-in and you will find yourselves in awe at the boldness and beauty of Ruth’s work! Our big thanks to Chairs For Affairs for arranging a beautiful setting along with Heritage Eats for their delicious make-your-own taco spread. We appreciate Bubbles & Brew for providing their cute truck to pour beer and pomegranate blueberry spritzers from Calicraft Brewing Company.
