A free tour of native gardens in Santa Clara Valley & Peninsula, San Francisco Bay Area
Since 2003, the Bay Area's pioneering native garden tour has showcased gardens featuring California native plants. This community-based tour is free of charge to the public. Each tour features 40-70 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. Our website also provides resources to help Bay Area gardeners to “go native” in their own gardens.
If you live in Santa Clara County or San Mateo County, and California native plants are a significant percentage (50% or more) of your garden, we invite you to submit your garden for inclusion in the Going Native Garden Tour 2017. The submission deadline is Sun, Oct 30, 2016, 11:59 pm.
Click here to submit your garden. Additional details are on the How do I submit my garden to be included in the Tour? page.
