Learning Garden Tour – July 9th, 2016

2016 Extension Master Gardener Program

Hennepin County

Learning Garden Tour

Join us for the annual Extension Master Gardener Program – Hennepin County Learning Garden Tour on Saturday July 9 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. This self-guided 2016 tour features the gardens of six Extension Master Gardener volunteers who live in the west and northwest suburbs.

Each garden is unique, offering a wide variety of design styles and plants for sun and shade. Come and get ideas for fun water features, interesting boulevard- and side-yard gardens, elevated garden beds, vegetable gardens and much more. Shop the Garden Shed for garden-themed art, books and whimsical outdoor decorations. And don’t miss the visiting raptors, courtesy of the Raptor Center.

Master Gardeners will be on hand at each location to answer questions, and each site will include a how-to demonstration. With eco-friendliness in mind, we won’t be handing out printed plant lists this year. Instead, we will have a few laminated lists on site for reference. Complete lists, as well as maps, can be printed from our website about a week before the tour.

Tickets get you into all of the gardens and include a booklet with directions, maps and lists of top-ten plants for each garden. Tickets can be purchased online now. Advance tickets are $15 or $20 the day of the tour. Quantity discounts are available—10 tickets/$125 and 20 tickets/$250. Children under 12 get in free when accompanied by a paying adult.
