Rose Arbor with ‘Fourth of July’ Rose

Imagine seeing your company or family’s name on the Rose Garden, Children’s Garden, Edible Garden, Plum Orchard or Iris Bed at the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens. For the first time, the Board of LBH&G is offering local businesses, families and individuals the chance to sponsor one of the site’s legendary gardens, including 17 themed areas, 15 perennial and six seasonal demonstration beds. Sponsorship costs range between $250.00 and $1,000.00, depending on the site selected, and include signage featuring the sponsor’s logo or name. Additional sponsor benefits include acknowledgement on the LBH&G’s website and newsletter, a free tour of the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens, and a 2018 discount at the Carriage House Gift Shop.

Sponsor funding will be used to purchase new garden tools, plants and irrigation supplies for the gardens. A team of volunteer gardeners, led by Garden Curator Rachel Spaeth, will plant and maintain your chosen garden. You, your employees and/or family members will be welcome to learn more about your garden and participate in its maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include weeding, deadheading, pruning and fertilizing.

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.
