What to See & Do This Season
In the Garden
Sustainable Garden Makeover
Explore the autumn landscape as leaves shift to vibrant hues and fruit reaches its peak. From harvest veggies to bountiful blooms, the Garden is plentiful with gifts of fall!
Our seasonal display will continue to highlight a palette of plants that are more appropriate for the dry Bay Area climate, including succulents and salvias.
In the House
Blue Gold: The Power and Privilege of Water.
While the Bay Area was originally financed by gold, California has an even more valuable resource: Water. California’s blue gold.
The land around Filoli evolved from a watershed valley dotted with creekside Ohlone villages to a reservoir supplying water to the city of San Francisco.
Trace Filoli’s water story from early struggles to find wells to feed the Garden, to the use of water features to show off wealth, to today’s explorations of sustainable plant palettes and irrigation innovations.
