ABOUT THE LAND
Garth's desert wilderness is nestled in the foothills of Pioneertown California, 20 miles from Joshua Tree.
The 640 acres is at 4,800 feet in elevation, Pipes Canyon facing, surrounded by conservancy-owned volcanic mesas, the Sawtooth Mountains, and the Pioneertown Mountains Preserve - part of
the Mojave High Desert in California, USA.
The landscape is an important wildlife area recovering little by little from a fire in 2006. The land features petroglyphs, huge granite boulders, open-air caves, Joshua trees, cacti, frogs, fish, birds, and many other species.
This spiecial place set amid huge boulders with a view that stretches forever holds a big heart and an even bigger goal.
Garth has worked tirelessly for the past 41 years on his 640 acre estate in the California desert to achieve a goal to cultivate a place of nature where people could come to embody the harmonic co-existence between man and the natural world. Within which to build sustainable agriculture, plantings, and animal husbandry, bringing about a transformation to what was perceived as wasteland.
" I want Boulder Gardens Sanctuary to be an example of how to live with the land without destroying it; To create a place where people could come and share their brilliance, their ideas, and their love,
to engineer a better world, a new world, so to speak."
Nature and people are continuously nurtured in this wonderful sacred garden oasis amongst the boulders.
