Residents are invited to step out into the fresh air and sunshine for the 9th Annual Santa Rosa Plateau Foundation Garden Tour & Garden Party, it was recently announced.
The event is planned for 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 28 at Santa Rosa Plateau in Murrieta.
The yearly event allows guests the opportunity to stroll a working vineyard, a 60-acre oak ranch and five unique and private water garden properties.
Focusing on how “water is the source of all nature”, the five diverse gardens feature very distinct landscapes that include a man-made lake, waterfalls, natural ponds, creeks, wildlife water features, stone water bridges and a “California friendly” natural garden.
The garden tours also include “Meet the Gardner” workshops and a native plant sale showcasing California native and Mediterranean climate plants.
In addition to the garden tours, this year’s event will include a “Garden Party” at Plateau Vineyards.
The Garden party will include:
• Garden Café – serving 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
• Stone Brewing Co. Craft Beer Garden
• Leonesse Cellars Wine Garden
• Live music by guitar and percussionists “Jimmy & Enrique”

No ticket is required for the Garden Party. Plateau Vineyards is located at 20170 Sierra Soto on the Santa Rosa Plateau in Murrieta. Follow the signs on Clinton Keith/Tenaja Road.
The event benefits the children’s education programs offered at the Santa Rosa Plateau Ecological Reserve.
