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

We're excited to host the 2022 Natural Garden Tour showcasing nine gardens in Clark County! Join us in-person on this tour to draw inspiration on creating or enhancing your own garden oasis.
For the second year in a row, we invited the public to immerse themselves in an interactive virtual tour of 13 selected gardens, which has racked up a collective 7,000 video views and 4,000 story map visits! 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.
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.
