On a recent Saturday, at Spice Topia in Ventura, Ventura’s Botanical Gardens held a membership event from 11 am to 3 pm.

“There are many aspects to the botanical gardens. It’s a place to explore, it’s a place of rejuvenation and relaxation, and at the same time, there is an educational component,” said Joe Cahill, Executive Director. Over 3000 plants are now in the garden’s collection, and that is scheduled to double in the next year,” he added.

Annual membership to the Gardens is $45 per year and EBT cardholders get free membership, with all the benefits of paid membership. There are free guided tours that members can signup for, and eighteen and under are free of cost. Educational groups and their group leaders are always free.
