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.

                                             Garth says:

                                               " 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.



In 2019,

Boulder Gardens Sanctuary;

       Center For Spiritual Renewal And Education 

              was established as a nonprofit for charity purposes. 


                      Boulder Gardens Sanctuary provides spiritual growth while 

                                             teaching us how to live in harmonic resonance with nature.        


Today the land is clean, open, and accessible.

      Trails and paths you take may lead to 

new horizons of spiritual growth

and education.


                  Over four decades Garth has lived at the

                           Boulder Gardens enduring harsh conditions, and at times, in extreme poverty.


                           Garth's generous spirit and humble graciousness welcome anyone passing                                     through with open arms a warm smile. This has created a powerful                                            network of friends who have been influenced and inspired by Garth.
