Each year the Clark County Green Neighbors program organizes a FREE self-guided tour on the third Sunday in July of the most vibrant and exquisite 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.

On Sunday, July 17, we resumed the Natural Garden Tour to an in-person event and welcomed over 2,700 visitors at nine gardens in Clark County! Participants admired a variety of native and non-native plants and learned about water conservation, composting, inviting wildlife into the yard, and many other techniques that help us live in harmony with nature.
Why Garden Naturally?
Common synthetic 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 reducing or removing these chemicals from our management practices, we help to keep a healthy environment for pets and children, while also protecting local wildlife and water sources.
Have a natural garden you want on the tour? Let us know! To participate, residents should practice environmentally friendly gardening techniques and willing to offer public tours of their yards and gardens. Contact Green Neighbors at [email protected] or 564.397.7352 with your interest in hosting.
