2015 marks 75 years since the Garden opened to the public as a place of beauty, learning and inspiration. San Francisco Botanical Garden Society invites you to join in commemorating this momentous anniversary at its annual Garden Feast, a festive luncheon held on the Great Meadow to support free, hands-on nature education for our community's children. Each year, we welcome over 12,000 children, plus their teachers and families, to experience the Garden as a living classroom of plants and wildlife.

Please join us and help bring the natural world alive for the next generation – right here in the heart of the city.
