Garden enthusiasts: sign up for the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s unique tour of five prominent Montecito estates with distinctive native gardens, to experience firsthand how our beautiful California native plants are used in local landscapes. Participants visit a variety of local home gardens, designed gardens, and restoration projects only open to public viewing during this tour.  These unique gardens feature native trees, shrubs, flowers, and ground covers used for a variety of benefits including water conservation, sensitive habitat preservation, fire deterrence, fragrance, and beauty.
