Join us for the return of the beloved Secret Garden Tour of La Jolla on Saturday, May 18, 2024. This unique event extends a rare invitation to the public to stroll behind the garden gates of some of La Jolla’s loveliest secluded gardens, often concealed from view by mature trees, vines, or foliage. Visitors from throughout San Diego County and beyond have the opportunity to view private gardens in La Jolla during this important Society fundraiser that supports our education and public programs.

Also returning this year is the Friday night Secret Garden Party, taking place May 17, 2024. This intimate garden gathering provides guests an opportunity to mix and mingle with other garden enthusiasts while enjoying hors d'oeuvres, wine and music. This enchanting evening garden experience has a limited number of tickets and will sell out quickly.

The ever-popular Secret Garden Boutique at Wisteria Cottage will be open and free to the public throughout the day on Saturday, May 18. Come shop and enjoy a collection of gardening accessories, plants and gifts available for purchase. The boutique features vendors known for their artistic style and craftsmanship as well as a silent auction with one-of-a-kind items. Delicious, eats will be available from food trucks.
