The annual garden show was held on Sunday, June 26, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Three homes with very different garden experiences were on the tour.
Visitors saw close to 1,000 plant species in beds and containers throughout John Ward's Willborough Road landscape, including a striking succulent garden as well as a vast array of unusual perennials along with antique ironwork. Steve Porter's garden in San Mateo Park features a meandering path that takes one to an exquisite formal garden down to a creek-side setting complete with waterfall and up again to a terraced vegetable garden overlooked by numerous fruit trees. Lauren Michaels, a succulent designer, displayed her creative work set within a lush landscape at the Hillsborough property.
Caminar supporters were encouraged to visit Steve and Patty Porter's home, where we highlighted Caminar programs and client artwork from our Art Therapy Program.
Two nonprofit organizations in San Mateo County were beneficiaries of this fundraising event, including LifeMoves (formerly InnVision Shelter Network) and Caminar for Mental Health. Donations in any amount were accepted as admission to all three locations. 100% of the proceeds went directly to the beneficiaries.
