burbankBay seniors may have forgotten the vast contributions of botanist Luther Burbank – over 800 strains of plants including the Shasta Daisy, Santa Rosa Plums, Freestone Peaches and the white blackberry. But up in Santa Rosa where he did most of his pioneering work they remember him at the Home and Gardens he built at the turn of the last century. The living spaces have the original furniture, the gardens which are one quarter the size of the original include medical herbs, wildlife habitats and ornamental grasses. There are guided as well as audio tours. Open Tuesday thru Sunday. Adults $7.
