Luther Burbank Home & Gardens

Upcoming Events

Update: Saturday, May 16, 2020

We are taking advantage of the changes in the Shelter-in-Place order to allow Volunteers back on the site to deal with the 2-month backlog of weeds. Our provisional date for opening to the public is Father’s Day, June 21. This date may be adjusted up or back based on circumstances.

If you would like to join us in vanquishing the weeds, we’d love to have you join us! We are accepting short-term Volunteers – fill out this form and we’ll be in touch. Shifts available Tues, Thurs, Fri & Sat for variable hours between 10-4.

We look forward to welcoming you back when it is safe to do so.

We have posted a free coloring book – Luther Burbank: the Man Who Could Make a Flower

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.
