About the West End Neighbors’ Garden and History Tour Seven years ago the garden tour committee decided to focus on one neighborhood within West Seventh to highlight individual neighborhoods and to make the “tour” more accessible and not so geographically broad. Five years ago we built on this concept and researched and wrote their histories.
The free garden and history guide will be distributed free the day of the tour, Saturday, September 12, 2020, with donations gladly accepted.
We do not distribute garden tour guides ahead of the event. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, September 12.
2019 Garden and History Booklet Available Did you miss 2019’s garden tour and would like a copy of the garden and history booklet? We have extras available in our office. They are free, and we gratefully accept donations; the books cost about $12 to print.
Thank you! This event is planned and run by dedicated volunteers, supported by neighborhood businesses, and made possible by neighbors welcoming visitors to their gardens. Thank you to all who helped make the Garden Tour possible this year and in years past!
If you would like to volunteer with the event - either in early planning, promotion, or the day-of, please email Emily or call the Federation office at 651.298.5599.
