Luther Burbank Home & Gardens

On my way home to southern California, I stopped for a few days up north to visit friends and had the wonderful opportunity to visit the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens in Santa Rosa.  Luther Burbank was an extraordinary horticulturist known for developing new hybrids of fruits, vegetables, and flowers. His accomplishments include the thornless blackberry, russet potato, and Shasta daisy. His birthdate, March 7, is celebrated in California as Arbor Day.

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

    I once lived a few blocks from the Burbank Home & Gardens. Need to go back and check it out again – I wholeheartedly recommend a visit if you are ever in Northern CA. His accomplishments are exceptional. More on Burbank and his work at:
