We are currently looking for home gardens in Marin to feature on next spring’s Bay-Friendly Garden Tour. This annual event showcases beautiful and inspiring gardens that use practices sensitive to our local environment.
The gardens we want to feature incorporate sustainable elements such as low-water-use or native plants, urban food growing, permaculture, rain and stormwater catchment, composting, lawn conversions, graywater systems and more. Home gardeners and landscape professionals alike are invited to nominate a garden for the 2012 tour.
The Marin tour will be on Saturday, May 19, 2012. To nominate a garden, contact Elena Freeman at (415) 945-1164 or email@example.com.
In previous years, the garden tour in Marin was known as the Eco-Friendly Garden Tour. This will be the first year we are joining forces with the Bay-Friendly Landscaping & Gardening Coalition in its 9th annual tour throughout the Bay Area.
