2017 Garden Tour: Big Gardens, Small Spaces

  • Somerville Garden Club Tour 1 Davis Square Somerville, MA, 02144 United States

A Self-Guided Tour of Member Gardens. Presented by the Somerville Garden Club

The SGC 2017 Garden Tour, Big Gardens, Small Spaces, celebrates the creativity and variety of compact gardens.

Walk through gardens of different styles, featuring shady perennials, colorful sun-loving flowers, statuary, vegetable plots, ponds, bee hives, unusual shrubs and trees, native plants and interesting hardscaping surrounding Somerville Garden Club member homes, and our three public garden sites. Gardens provide pleasure for our gardeners, our neighbors, and in many cases, a haven for native plants, birds, and local wildlife.

Tickets for the self-guided tour are $18. Proceeds support the educational programs and public plantings of the Somerville Garden Club.

Gardeners will be welcoming visitors to their yards and will be available to answer questions. This is a rare chance to learn about plants, design, and horticulture from this wonderful array of passionate SGC members. Prepare to be inspired and educated, and don’t be surprised if you come away eager to work on your own urban landscape. Come for fun, leave with inspiration!
