Spend Saturday, August 23 in beautiful Santa Cruz when public places and private homes host tours of their edible gardens. This year the tour will consist of over 15 residential and public edible gardens, that represent many stages and styles of vegetable and fruit production. Tour participants will find a unique experience at each space, including kids activities, gray water system advice, organic and drought-tolerant tips, chickens, and quails and alpacas, oh my! We hope that this event will inspire gardeners and neighbors to share and learn about the art of gardening in Santa Cruz.

This year we have chosen a new tour format. All of the gardens will be open from 10:00-3:00, and garden tourists will have the flexibility to choose from our map to build their own tour.

Maps to the gardens and after party will be distributed via email to ticket holders a week before the event.
