Every summer Douglas County Master Gardeners sponsor a tour of local gardens that has become a very popular event in the area. This year you will not want to miss the beautiful gardens that local gardeners have volunteered to share with the public.
Five gardens are featured. There are a number of unique features included this year including straw bale gardening, a fairy garden, a miniature hosta garden and many more.
Also new is a community vegetable garden. And of course there are many displays of flower garden areas of all types.
For details and for registration information check out our brochure. It is in the form of a pdf that you can print off with a map to guide your travel plan.
A wide variety of gardening educational opportunities are provided to the people of Douglas County each year through a growing number of programs made available by Douglas County Master Gardeners.
Descriptions of many of these are found in the section called Douglas County Master Gardener Activities. On this page you will find the most important ones publicized with participation details as they come up on the calendar.
