Natural Garden Tour is Going Virtual!

Stay tuned for more information coming July 20, 2020!


andrews 3Each year the Clark County Green Neighbors program organizes an annual self-guided tour on the third Sunday in July of the most vibrant and beautiful natural gardens in the county. All of these gardens thrive without the use of synthetic chemicals and include a wide variety of natural features and innovative gardening techniques.

Keeping health and safety in mind, we are celebrating our 15th year a little differently! The 2020 Natural Garden Tour will showcase 15 selected gardens in an interactive virtual format, incorporating a video tour, GIS Story Map, photos and more! Join us on this virtual tour to draw inspiration on creating or enhancing your own garden oasis.

In 2019, we had over 830 individuals participate in the tour accumulating to over 2,000 visits to 12 household gardens located around the county! Participants admired a variety of plants and learned about water conservation, composting, inviting wildlife into the yard, and many other techniques that help us live in balance with the ecosystem. 

Why Garden Naturally?
Common chemicals kill many insects beneficial to the health of your garden and they compromise the garden’s ability to fight pests. By learning natural gardening techniques, you can minimize the use of chemicals to control diseases and pests. By removing chemicals from our management practices, we help to keep a healthy environment for pets and children, while also protecting local wildlife and water sources.

Become a Garden Host
Have a natural garden you want on the tour? Let us know! To participate, residents should practice environmentally friendly gardening techniques and be willing to offer public tours of their yards and gardens.
