2023 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour

 2023 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour

Neil Cummins gardensThe 13th annual Eco-Friendly Garden Tour returns to an in-person format on Saturday, May 13th from 10am – 4pm. This self-guided tour, hosted by the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water 2023 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour
Partnership, focuses on low water use, sustainable landscaping at 17 inspirational gardens throughout Sonoma and Marin counties, including the personal gardens of local landscape designers, architects, and garden enthusiasts. If you are interested in landscaping your yard like the pros, or simply looking for fresh ideas for future landscaping projects, the garden tour is the perfect event for you!

These gardens are all focused on our California native plants, which have adapted to our frequent drought conditions. Garden hosts will offer ideas and insight into how you can create and manage a sustainable, low-water-use garden in Sonoma and Marin counties. There are 7 gardens in Marin, from Corte Madera to Novato. Many of the Sonoma gardens are those of Mile Baker (Sonoma) CNPS chapter members, as well.

There are a few bonus events taking place on this year’s tour, including the annual plant sale of the Milo Baker Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. The sale will take place at the Laguna Foundation at 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa. Plants will also be for sale at one of the Novato gardens. In addition, Zero Waste Sonoma will be providing tour participants with free compost at one of the gardens, so make sure to bring your truck and shovel!

The tour is free, but registration is required. Register for the tour here

We look forward to seeing you at this year’s Eco-Friendly Garden Tour.
