For guests looking for a hands-on experience in a garden, than this is it. The hike is mostly easy to moderate and includes walking through the vineyard hillsides, taking in picturesque views, and strolling through native oak groves and orchard. Once we arrive at the garden, guests will receive a garden tour. After the tour, guests will be instructed with a garden project that may entail planting seeds, or transplanting. Since working amongst the edible garden will tease guests appetite, everyone will harvest seasonal produce to take home in their gifted reusable bag and prepare a snack to enjoy on site in our new outdoor kitchen. Guests will also get to take home a simple and seasonal garden recipe. The fun continues when guests have the opportunity to feed the exotic animals that reside on the property. After the hike is completed guests will enjoy a wine tasting of five different wines from the Malibu Wines tasting room. A shuttle bus will take us from the hike to the Malibu Wines tasting area where you can enjoy the live music and soak in the beautiful setting nestled in the hillside.
Gardening and healthy food has always been a big part of my life, except for one thing…I never liked to get dirty. As a little girl I would help my Dad in the garden & then ask my Mom to clean the bottom of my shoes. In my late-twenties, I had a turning point in my career and decided to pursue being an Environmental Educator turned Urban Farmer. Since 2009, I have dedicated the past nine years to educating youth and adults on the environment, sustainability and organic gardening. I feel blessed to work at 'Saddlerock Gardens,' and want to share my knowledge and this special place with others.
Organic Produce & Snack We will be harvesting veggies from our organic garden for you to take home and preparing a light and…
Wine We will take you through a wine tasting of 5 different local wines.
The 2.5 mile hike covers the 1000 acre estate of Saddlerock Ranch & Garden. Along the way we get the chance to stop and take pictures at beautiful vantage points. We will also be interacting with exotic animals that live here. Animals such as zebras, water buffalo, llamas and giraffe call this place home.

If you are a big hiker, than this is more of a stroll. Wear clothes appropriate for the weather and that you wouldn't mind getting dirty in the garden. Produce in the garden is seasonal.
