With our friends at San Francisco Heritage, we will explore the accomplishments of Sydney Stein, who in 1929 became the first woman hired as a gardener by the City of San Francisco.
2020 marks the 150th anniversary of Golden Gate Park, and our lecture will explore a beloved unsung hero: Sydney Stein, who in 1929 became the first woman hired as a gardener by the City of San Francisco. Nicole Meldahl will recount some of the specific initiatives she accomplished, such as saving tulips from Europe immediately before World War II, her ascendance to chief nurseryman (or should we say, nurseryWOman?), and eventually manager of the Conservatory of Flowers.
