The Southern California Horticultural Society is pleased to announce Brian Kemble as our Ruth Borun Lecture Series speaker for 2024.  He is Curator of the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, whose mission is to preserve Bancroft’s original vision and design principles.  Kemble has traveled extensively, seeking new, drought-adapted plants for the Bancroft Garden and seamlessly weaving them into existing compositions. Augmented by his stunning photography, he will share fascinating stories about selected plants and their origins during his talk.

This talk is part of the Ruth Borun Lecture Series. We are grateful to the Borun family for their support to bring world-class speakers to our Society!

Doors open at 7:00pm at the historic Blinn House in Pasadena (click here for a Google map). The program will begin at 7:30pm.
