The Rancho's nationally recognized gardens were developed early in the 20th century under the guidance of owner Florence Green Bixby with the help of outstanding landscape architects and plantsmen of the era. Your guide will be the Rancho's Historic Garden Associate, Janet Brown Becker. Ms. Becker has a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture with an emphasis in California garden design and history from UC Berkeley. She studied under the Rancho’s preeminent landscape architectural consultants, Russell Beatty and David Streatfield. Ms. Becker oversees the historic interpretation, curatorial documentation and horticultural integrity of the Rancho’s gardens.
