About the Garden

Welcome to Studio Petrichor, our ever-evolving homestead and design studio. Nestled in Altadena, CA, just below the Angeles National Forest and the San Gabriel Mountains, this modest 1947 traditional-minimal home is a place of respite and inspiration for the Studio Petrichor design team. This is a community space where we educate and empower folks to honor and protect natural, living systems through our non-profit, Poly/Ana. We look forward to spending time with you in the garden and sharing what has been and hasn’t been working for us so we can learn together.
