The Interactive 2020 Clark County Natural Garden Tour is online NOW!

2020 Natural Garden Tour

The 2020 Virtual Natural Garden Tour is now open! For 15 years, the public has been invited to visit inspiring private gardens that skip the use of chemicals and encourage natural techniques. This year, visitors can peer into all of the 15 gardens without leaving their own home.

Incorporating curated video shots and  photos, this new format allows visitors to click on garden categories that feature techniques such as lawn alternatives, organic produce or pollinator habitat. Learn more about the host gardener's story, and enjoy the beauty of natural gardening.

Sean Phillips of CVTV interviews Gardener Greg Andrews for the video component of the virtual tour.
