Are you a plantsperson in Southern California, free on Saturdays, and have extremely discernible taste? Or are you simply a person who likes spending an afternoon hanging out  in a garden, listening to music? Either way, we have some weekend plans for you.

On Saturday, September 7th, the Getty Center in Los Angeles will be showcasing Mother Earth’s Plantasia, the wonderful album by Mort Garson for plants and the people who love them. Full disclosure: we love this album, and a day hanging out in the Getty’s Central Garden listening to ol’ Mort’s ode to plants sounds like the perfect day off.

“Celebrate California plant culture with a special program inspired by 1970s Los Angeles and Plantasia, the iconic album made for plants and the people who love them. Worldwide curiosities guide Atlas Obscura and Brooklyn's Sacred Bones Records teams up with the Getty's Ever Present series to delve into the plant-centric cultural movement behind Mort Garson's cult-classic electronic 1976 album Mother Earth's Plantasia. Join us for a day filled with music, workshops, and presentations that explore the influence of plants on art and culture in Los Angeles.”
