Natural Garden Tour

Every Third Sunday in July

The Natural Garden Tour is an annual self-guided tour on the third Sunday in July, offering a peek into spectacular gardens that are maintained through natural gardening techniques by your neighbors. Meet the host gardeners and gather ideas to make your yard a beautiful and healthy place to enjoy. 

View or Download the 2019 Natural Garden Tour Booklet


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.
