Natural Garden Tour
Occuring annually on a Sunday in July
The Natural Garden Tour is a self-guided tour on a Sunday in July every year, 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.
In 2018, we had over 750 citizens participate in the tour accumulating to over 1200 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.
