A 2.5 hour-long guided tour of the Osmosis meditation garden will be conducted by Osmosis founder Michael Stusser and tree pruning expert Michael Alliger.

The garden nestled in the most beautiful part of West Sonoma County has been built over a period of many years and was designed by the preeminent landscape designer, Robert Ketchell, of Britain.
