24th Annual Mendocino Coast Garden Tour

The gala opening reception will be held at a French inspired home overlooking the ocean in Little River. The home is situated spectacularly on the edge of a cliff at the base of an old quarry. The formal French garden sits in ordered juxtaposition to the soaring quarry walls. With a nod to the French influence of the venue we will be serving hors d'oeuvres and a selection of Anderson Valley sparkling wines.

Ravens Restaurant Benefit Lunch

On Garden Tour day, the Ravens Restaurant at the Stanford Inn by the Sea, the north coast's premier organic vegan restaurant, will host a special gourmet lunch. The meal is not the only sensory pleasure, with a breathtaking view from the dining room extending from the Big River Estuary to the Pacific Ocean.

Inspired by the Stanford’s Certified Organic gardens, the Ravens Restaurant is outstanding and nationally acclaimed for vegetarian cuisine. Guests at Stanford Inn, as well as local Mendocino residents, consider Ravens Restaurant to be an essential dining experience on the Mendocino Coast.


Saturday, June 25, 10 am – 5 pm

On Garden Tour day, browse the Mendocino Art Center's Garden Shop, featuring an array of plants, creative handcrafted garden art and many other surprises!

The Mendocino Art Center grounds are beautifully landscaped, primarily with native plants, and the Zacha Sculpture Garden features not only sculpture, but a lovely tiled courtyard surrounded by art studios.
