Join leading horticulturists, landscape designers, and conservation and preservation experts as they gather for a special two-day symposium at the Ruth Bancroft Garden, to reflect on the range and breadth of Ruth’s legacy as a dry garden designer. The sculptural shapes and her vibrant color palette of soft-fleshed succulents proved we don’t have to sacrifice beauty to create sustainable gardens. As we face issues of population growth, climate change, and increasing pressure on water resources throughout California, the lessons learned from her plant choices and gardening practices are increasingly vital to our relationship to the land we occupy and to garden design for the future.
