The South Garden at Rancho Los Alamitos

Rancho Los Alamitos Historic Ranch’s garden series features experts throughout the year to educate garden enthusiasts, focusing on the pleasures of the garden, the essence of the palate, and the art of the landscape. The Rancho’s next program will be a lecture by Tom Spellman entitled “Antioxidants from Your Garden” on Saturday, July 24 from 10am to 12:30pm.
Spellman’s message emphasizes that different types of antioxidants can protect our tissues from damage and that it is best to eat a wide range of antioxidant-rich foods. He will guide attendees through a selection of edible ornamentals and decorative fruit trees that have delicious fruits that are rich in antioxidants while being beautiful and complementary to edible and ornamental landscapes. Following the presentation, participants will enjoy healthy refreshments.
The cost of general admission for the lecture is $15 per person and $10 for students and Rancho Los Alamitos members. Reservations, which are required, may be made online rancholosalamitos.com or by calling (562) 431-3541. Rancho Los Alamitos is located at 6400 East Bixby Hill Rd. Parking for the garden series events will be available on-site.
