Welcome to the official website for the Home, Greenhouse, and Gardens where world-renowned horticulturist, Luther Burbank, lived and experimented with plants for most of his 50-year career.
This Registered National, State & City Historic Landmark is a unique city park located at the corner of Santa Rosa and Sonoma Avenues in Santa Rosa, California - across the street from City Hall and Juilliard Park. See the map to Luther Burbank Home & Gardens.
The Carriage House Gift Shop and Museum is open and walk-in docent-led tours are available April through October. The grounds are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to dusk year-round for self-guided tours and reserved Group and Children's Tours.
Snoopy Specialty License Plate
Have you seen the newest proposed specialty plate? The one with the dancing beagle on it?
Well, proceeds from this plate will be used to fund grants for California museums. Museums such as… Luther Burbank Home & Gardens!
Our nonprofit board members (Daniel Flock, Carol Skold, Kathie Leader, John Sawyer, Dee Blackman, Sharlene McCaw shown, Claire Borges, Linda Daube, Mitch Hollohan not shown) are excited at the possibilities.
Approximately half of the 7500 plates needed to start this program have already been pre-ordered. If you’d like to show your pride as a Santa Rosan, or your affection for a certain imaginative beagle, or your devotion to California museums – visit www.snoopyplate.com to find out how you can order your own plate today.
Did You Know?
In California, Arbor Day is celebrated on March 7th, in honor of Luther Burbank’s birthday. (In many other parts of the country it’s celebrated late in April, as being a more appropriate time, weatherwise, for planting trees.)
In fact, California celebrates Arbor Week, March 7-14. You can find more information about local activities at Arbor Week.
