Since 2003, the Bay Area’s pioneering native garden tour has showcased gardens featuring California native plants. This community-based tour features up to 60 gardens, most of them private home gardens, which are open on tour day in a do-it-yourself, open house format.
The gardens on the tour demonstrate reduced water use, reduced chemical and pesticide use, improved habitat, and the unique aesthetic appeal of gardens designed with California native plants. The website also provides resources to help Bay Area gardeners to “go native” in their own gardens.
On tour day, sponsoring nurseries will conduct native plant sales at select gardens. Part of the proceeds benefit Going Native Garden Tour.
