Celebrate Mother’s Day amongst the beautiful scenery of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. On Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 14 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m., guests can pick up pre-ordered picnic baskets filled with sandwiches, salads and other gourmet delicacies to enjoy with their loved ones in the garden. During this time of year, the garden is blooming with orange poppies, purple lupine and other seasonal favorites.
“Mother’s Day is the perfect day to enjoy the Garden in full bloom,” says Steve Windhager, Ph.D., Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Executive Director. “We hope families of all sizes will enjoy a picnic in the company of our beautiful, naturalistic gardens, created entirely with California native plants, or take the opportunity enjoy the view from our new Island View Garden.”
Purchasing a picnic basket includes free admission to the garden for up to four guests that day. It also includes a map of the best spots in the garden, a keepsake flower, lunch with vegan options available, napkins and utensils and 20% off one regularly priced item in the gift shop.
