Brandes $50,000 bequest to the Los Angeles Arboretum Foundation, the Arboretum Library is using some of that money to keep moving forward with adding items to our online catalog.

Beer for Books and the L. A. Garden Show, May 1-3, 2009 We had a successful time at the L.A. Garden Show selling used books, magazines and beer. We have already used some of the proceeds to buy new books from the Missouri Botanical Garden Press. Keep us in mind if you are looking for a place to donate your plant and garden used book and magazines, so we can use them for the next year’s sale at the LA Garden Show.
