Moorten Botanical Garden is a funky little cactus garden in Palm Springs that’s been around since the late 1930s — the Moorten family have called its acreage home for almost a century. ”Slim” Moorten and his family traveled around the world collecting specimens then came to the desert and opened Moorten’s, where you can see these fine samples on display, arranged along a meandering path, some of which are over 70 years old and several feet tall. Read all about it above (a local article about Moorten’s from 1969), and come meet Clark, Slim’s son, this evening at Ace — we’re celebrating our sustainability efforts including a new food waste system, and guests will get a potted cactus from Moortens, a bag of locally made, organic granola from Earthling Organics in Palm Springs, plus special treats from King’s Highway and Chef Craig Mattox with friends from County Line Harvest Farm.
See you tonight.
