Ruth Bancroft Gardens  

 Ruth Bancroft, Founder of Drought-Tolerant Ruth Bancroft Gardens, Turns 107

   Nice to be able to honor  great folks while they’re still alive…

    Wish we could say ‘Ruth Bancroft Celebrates’ but just to have the founder of the wonderful Eco-Friendly Succulent Gardens in Walnut Creek, CA with us another year is quite a milestone.   Bancroft has inspired gardenrs hacross the world throguh her willingness to share the remakable landscape of drought -tolerant plans she began creating at age 64 as the first Partner Garden in the Garden Conservancy.   Hopefully, Bancroft will live to see the ground breaking of the ruth Bancroft Garden Visitors Center
