There are no active dates for this event.
Due to an overwhelming response for Ruth's Celebration of Life event, we want to stress our very limited on site parking. Please be prepared to park off site and walk to the north entrance gate. We also encourage you to attend in the afternoon to ensure the crowd is dispersed throughout the timeframe. We thank you so much for your interest to celebrate this magnificent woman and all she did to create a beautiful, peaceful sanctuary in the middle of our city.


Ruth's Celebration of Life
**We are expecting a high number of attendees for this event. Please carpool, walk, bike, or take public transportation if possible as parking is extremely limited. There will only be limited handicap parking on site. Parking on the side streets (Banbury Rd. & Stratton Rd.) is also limited and we ask that you please be courteous of our neighbors. Parking is also available at Doctor's Park (corner of Ygnacio Valley Rd. and Walnut Ave) where a shuttle service will transport attendees (or you can walk- it's just several blocks from the Garden). Thank you for your patience and understanding.**

On behalf of The Ruth Bancroft Garden and the Bancroft family, we are saddened to announce the passing of our beloved founder, Ruth Bancroft. Ruth, who was 109 years of age, died at home surrounded by family, and by the extensive, amazing private and public gardens she created and tended over 76 years of her lifetime.

Mrs. Bancroft gained international recognition for her pioneering work in horticulture, demonstrating that a dry garden in the heart of a busy urban, inland corridor could be lush, diverse, and striking in design. Her garden was the inspiration for the founding of The Garden Conservancy in 1989, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving private gardens for public use. The Ruth Bancroft Garden was its first preservation project in 1992

An open house celebration of Ruth's life will be held in the Garden on: Saturday, Feb. 17th, 2018 from 11am - 4pm. We will have special speakers, garden tours, exhibits and live music.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in honor of Mrs. Bancroft be directed to benefit the mission of The Ruth Bancroft Garden, Inc. at 1552 Bancroft Road, Walnut Creek, 94598. Please state "In Ruth's honor".
