San Francisco Botanical Garden Society

Last year I got married at the Chicago Botanic Garden. I’ve never been much of a plant person, but it was truly a perfect setting. I’m just amazed that they can grow such a diverse array of beautiful plants in this climate–especially with the winter we’re having this year. If I was opening such a garden, I’d want to do so in a more moderate climate like San Francisco’s. John McLaren was the landscape gardener who was Golden Gate Park’s superintendent for 56 years. He picked a place for a future botanical garden that had “a variety of soil and exposure, sloping, dry and sunny hillsides, sheltered spots and rich, low or marshy land.” The San Francisco Botanical Garden finally got the necessary funding in 1926, and in 1954 the Strybing Arboretum Society was founded to support the garden and its programs. Today the organization is known as the San Francisco Botanical Garden Society, and it supports “55 acres of both landscaped gardens and open spaces, showcasing over 8,000 different kinds of plants from around the world.”

High Society

San Francisco’s microclimates provide a perfect opportunity to grow a wide variety of non-native plants. Where the garden is situated allows them “to recreate conditions of the high elevation tropical cloud forests of Central and South America and Southeast Asia.” They also have the most significant Magnolia collections outside of China. Beyond the garden, the Botanical Garden Society also offers a variety of educational programs and resources. They’ve created an exceptional place to learn about and experience the diversity of plant life. If you’d like to join them, take a look at San Francisco Botanical Garden Society’s Jobs page. They’re currently looking for an Assistant Librarian and a Visitor Services Agent. There is also a Membership Onsite Sales Associate position posted on Idealist.
