Yes! It is true! Luther Burbank, beloved horticulturist, will again ride his bicycle in Sebastopol.

The Western Sonoma County Historical Society is pleased to announce that, thanks to the artistry and inspiration  of local sculptor Patrick Amiot, a metal likeness of the famous botanist Luther Burbank will reside forevermore here in Sebastopol. This new sculpture will be another delightful addition to Sebastopol.

The new statue is to be placed on the front lawn of Burbank Heights & Orchards at 7777 Bodega Ave., Sebastopol, the very spot where Luther did important work in the field of plant development.

Admirers of Mr. Burbank and his work and fans of Patrick Amiot, will gather to unveil the new creation, and to celebrate the life of Luther Burbank at 1 p.m. on the afternoon of Saturday, April 23, 2016.

All are welcome to attend. For more information Erin Sheffield, erinsheff@gmail. 707-481-3488
