Rancho Santa fe Garden Club members tour Borrego Springs


The Rancho Santa Fe Garden Club organized a tour of the Ricardo Breceda sculptures and spring flowers at Borrego Springs. On March 23. a chartered bus transported 20 people to the desert town, located about two hours northeast of San Diego. The tour started with a close up experience of the larger than life sculptures found in Galleta Meadows. Lunch was served at the de Anza Country Club.

The afternoon activities included a stop at a citrus stand for grapefruit and oranges and then the Borrego Springs Visitor Center. While there, the group was able to watch a short film about the history of Borrego Springs, learn about the native life and plants, and take a walk through a garden where the desert flowers and cactus were in full bloom. The RSF Garden Club has more activities lined up for members and guests.

Activities in the upcoming months include two Coffee in the Garden events, the Annual Meeting, a succulent wall display workshop, and the return of the RSF Tag & Craft Sale.
