A 60-minute tour of the 10.5-acre garden followed by optional lunch in upper Kensington.

Come join us for a tour of U.C. Berkeley’s splendid Blake Garden, located 4 miles north of campus, in the small hillside community of Kensington.  Learn about the history and design of this 10.5-acre teaching-garden managed by UC Berkeley’s Department of Landscape Architecture and College of Environmental Design.  

Known for its outstanding collection of plants assembled by the Blake family between 1922 and 1962 and since augmented by the University, the Garden also features stunning views of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.  The tour will be led by Museum Scientist and Horticulturist Timothy Cole.  Free on-site parking lot.

After the tour, meet up for no-host lunch at Inn Kensington Restaurant, 293 Arlington Avenue in Kensington.

Group Size:  Minimum 10; Maximum 25
