Quarryhill Botanical Garden (Glen Ellen, Calif.)
1988 to 1995
"It is located on 20 rocky acres in Sonoma, California and dedicated to the conservation and study of Asian plants. The plants are almost all grown from seed and are collected in Asia in association with the Royal Botanical Garden, Kew and Lork Howick of the Howick Arboretum in Northumberland."
"Because of uncontrolled development (i.e. logging and grazing in China) many plant species are disappearing forever. After only seven years, Quarryhill has the largest collection of Asian plants, all scientifically documented, in North America."
Persons associated with the property include: Jane Davenport Jansen (chairman/former owner); Eleanor Davenport (director); William McNamara (director/photographer); Sally MacBride (director/ GCA representative); Donna Bowman (director/ GCA representative); Floyd Moses (accountant); Maynard Garrison (lawyer); David Shepard (lanscape designer).
