Eco-Friendly Garden Tour


The 2017 tour will take place on Saturday May 13 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Garden information and registration will be available at the beginning of April.

The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is a public outreach and education program that promotes sustainable landscaping practices by showcasing inspiring gardens throughout Sonoma County and North Marin. The Tour highlights Russian River-Friendly and Bay-Friendly landscaping best practices, and supports QWEL certified professionals by featuring their personal or client’s gardens. The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is self-guided and is provided free of charge.

For 2017 the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership is excited to be collaborating with the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) Milo Baker Chapter and Daily Acts. Each of these organizations will be presenting some of the gardens on the tour.

Public Gardens & More

For the other 364 days we are pleased to provide you with a listing of inspiring public demonstration gardens that you can visit at any time of the year. For a virtual experience you can also visit the gardens that were featured on the tour in the past few years.
