“Home of renowned horticulturist Luther Burbank”

The Luther Burbank Experiment Farm works closely with the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens located in Santa Rosa, CA. This is where world-renowned horticulturist, Luther Burbank, lived and experimented with plants for most of his 50-year career. This Registered National, State & City Historic Landmark is a unique city park located at the corner of Santa Rosa and Sonoma Avenues in Santa Rosa, California - across the street from City Hall and Juilliard Park. The Carriage House Gift Shop and Museum is open and walk-in docent-led tours are available April through October. Luther Burbank bought his 15-acre farm on Gold Ridge in 1885 in Sebastopol. During his career he introduced over 800 varieties of fruits, flowers, vegetables, and grains. He developed many of California's plums and prunes, the ancestor of the Idaho Potato, the Shasta Daisy, and novelties such as Plumcots, Thornless Blackberry, and Spineless Cactus. The City of Sebastopol worked with the Society in its efforts to obtain three acres of the original farm and to restore the Cottage. Restoration began in 1983. Since then the Society's Farm Committee with the aid of volunteers continues to maintain the cottage and Burbank plant varieties, provide a self-guiding plant walk and train Docents for guided tours. The grounds are open daily from 8:00 a.m. to dusk year-round for self-guided tours and reserved Group and Children's Tours.
