9 am to 2 pm
Celebrate the New Year by joining us for our annual Sow in the New Year. Sprinkle a handful of California native seeds in preparation for a wonderful and colorful display of wildflowers this spring. This annual community event rings in the New Year each year by the gathering of hundreds of like-minded community gardeners and lovers of the outdoors. Join people of all ages as they engage in the fun and contribute to the native plant restoration of Grant Park.
Sow in the New Year is family-friendly and free. It is a great opportunity to get outdoors, walk the trail with and enjoy spectacular ocean views, breathe in the crisp winter air, and scatter the hillsides with California native wildflower seeds. With a bit of rain, the seeds promise an arresting carpet of blossoms in the spring. Participants will also have the chance to learn about California native plants, sustainability, water conservation, erosion control and the future of the Ventura Botanical Gardens.
We'll be sowing the seeds along the trail. Gardeners gloves, a water bottle, comfortable clothing and shoes are recommended. Parking is available. Meet at the trailhead.
HIKE THE DEMONSTRATION TRAIL
Join us for a FREE informational hike to learn more about the Garden's plans and progress. Guided tours will meet in the upper parking lot behind City Hall on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month at 10am and will last one hour. No reservations needed!
