TCLF is pleased to announce its spring garden excursion highlighting the diverse cultural landscapes of Pasadena and Los Angeles, California. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour several private contemporary and historic gardens, with both the original designers and those who have stewarded the properties.
Events will include a visit to Pasadena’s Thorton Garden (recently featured in Garden Design magazine), a tour of the Norton Simon Museum’s outdoor sculpture garden by designer Nancy Goslee Power, a walking tour of the Garret Eckbo-designed Ambassador College, and evening drinks on the terrace of the Greene and Greene-designed Gamble House.
