Love is the Prize is located on a beautiful piece of land at 3,500 feet elevation between Santa Ysabel and the historic town of Julian, California. This is a 10.8-acre property located at the Headwaters of the San Diego River. With many large stunning rock outcroppings and Metates carved into the rock, this has been the home to many Native Americans before.
They have many varieties of native plants. The location here is very unique because they are located in a transition zone right in the middle of the low elevation coastal plants and the high elevation mountainous plants. On the walking paths here, they have one California Native Plant(s) clearly labelled. They are just starting this project so they may have six or seven plants labelled when you come.
They want this to be a demonstration garden for Southern California Native Plants. Some of the native plants are edible. This area has beautiful, expansive views and a rich California "Gold Rush" history. The place is surrounded by many Native American reservations and has beautiful hiking trails. And it's located an hour away from the city of San Diego and two hours from Los Angeles. They also feature the largest Labyrinth in California.
