Take inspiration from the beauty around you to create your own interpretation of our coastal landscape of sea and flowers. 

The Hortense Miller Garden, a hidden Laguna Gem, features a 2.5-acre garden with over a dozen unique trails and a pristine Mid-Century Modern home build by Knowlton Fernald in 1958 on the slope of Boat Canyon.

Hortense Miller Garden presents a free Art in the Garden Workshop on Saturday

Tucked under towering Torrey Pines, planted from one-gallon saplings in 1959, there are over 600 plant species of which about 150 are California natives.  The wondrous variety of plantings gives the garden color and texture during every season. The walls of glass of this home offer breathtaking ocean views. 

The original furnishings give the home a rare authenticity, fitting of a true Laguna artist. The Aviary Gallery features an exhibit of the original renderings of the home drawn by the architect in 1958.

The workshop and all materials are free to participants who must register in advance for the class by calling Marsha Bode at (949) 244-2010 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
