California Botanic Garden (CalBG) has partnered with Bert & Rocky’s Cream Company in Claremont to create three unique flavors of ice cream that incorporate California native plants grown and harvested at CalBG. Participants of Freeze Wild will receive three pints, including these specialty flavors:

  • Coyote Mint Chip: breezy coyote mint against the backdrop of chocolate chip ice cream 
  • Coastal Sage Yum: vanilla has never been more daring with this addition of Cleveland sage
  • Cactus Cream: this desert dessert celebrates the hot-pink fruits of prickly pear with melon-like notes

Event registrants will be able to pick up a custom box containing pints of these three flavors. Staff will contact registrants to coordinate pickup reservations for Wednesday, July 29 and Thursday, July 30. Physical distancing guidelines will be followed.

At the virtual event on Thursday, July 30 from 6 pm – 7 pm we will taste each ice cream, introducing the recipe and ingredients. CalBG staff will share the ecological importance of each species and how you can include these plants in your home garden.
