Oral History


Telling the Stories of the Garden

As described in the History of the Garden timeline, the Arizona Garden has gone through periods of decline and restoration in its long history. We're currently undertaking an oral history project to speak with the Stanford employees and volunteers who spearheaded the restoration project and ensured its success. Their first hand accounts will help us tell a more complete story about the garden's history and longevity.

Watch this space for more information about the project and links to interviews and other audio files.
