In June, the Ruth Bancroft Garden and Nursery put on its successful yearly fundraiser. While the event was virtual, fans of the gorgeous Walnut Creek garden could tune in from their own homes and watch an opening slideshow along with the first ever Gardeneer Awards ceremony. Recipients then walked the garden’s green carpet. An online auction was also part of the festivities, and guests bid on exclusive events, trips, tours, art, dinners, and much more. To support the local institution, go online to make a donation.
