The 2024 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour was a Success!

The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is a public outreach and education program that promotes sustainable landscaping practices by showcasing inspiring gardens throughout Sonoma and Marin counties. TheĀ 2024 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour took place on Saturday, May 18th, with over 3,500 attendees visiting 26 gardens throughout the two counties.

We are looking for eco-friendly gardens to participate on the 2025 Eco-Friendly Garden Tour. Please visit the garden tour website for more information, and to subscribe to the Eco-Friendly Garden Tour newsletter.
