Description of the Annual Gardens Gone Native Tour, a free self-guided tour of native plant gardens in and around Sacramento.
The 2019 Gardens Gone Native Tour on Saturday, April 27th will feature 23 private gardens located in Sacramento (10), Woodland (2), Davis (2), North Highlands (1), Carmichael (1), Rancho Cordova (2), Fair Oaks (1), Citrus Heights (1), Granite Bay (1), and Orangevale (2).
The tour is sponsored each year by the Sacramento Valley Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. The mission of the California Native Plant Society is to bring together science, education, conservation, and gardening to power the native plant movement.
During tour hours that day (9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) tour participants are welcome to visit as many, or as few, of the water-efficient native plant gardens as may fit their schedule.
SacramentoRevealed.com – All Things Sacramento (from a personal perspective)
A friend and I plan to visit several of the gardens located in Sacramento. I always enjoy seeing what people do in their gardens – it is so inspiring!
All of the gardens on the tour have at least 50% California Native plants, and there will be a variety of garden styles showcasing a multitude of native plant species.
I have registered for the tour and downloaded the Gardens Gone Native Tour brochure. It contains both maps of the various garden locations, as well as the house address and a brief description of each garden.
Speaking of native plant gardens – if you are unable to attend the tour this year you can get your native plant fix by visiting the California Native Plant Demonstration Garden.
California Native Plant Demonstration Garden
The California Native Plant Demonstration Garden (Garden) is located within the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery (Cemetery). The main entrance to the Cemetery is at 1000 Broadway.
The Garden, located in the southeast corner of the Cemetery, has over 150 species of native plants from various regions of California. Volunteers maintain the Garden.
Additional Information about the Garden and directions on how to find it can be found here.
