The Pima County Master Gardeners announce their 18th Annual Home Garden Tour on April 1, 2017 from 9 am to 3 pm. Four gorgeous desert home gardens will be open to the public for the tour. These four west-side Tucson Mountain home gardens offer a wonderful palette of gardening choices. You may stroll contemplative labyrinths at one, inhale breathtaking views at another, buzz among the bees in a wildflower garden at a third, or enter a tropical enclosure of exotic orchids at a fourth.....all while learning important info on topics such as harvesting our precious rainwater or the essential importance of pollinators in our gardens. The Demonstration Gardens at the Cooperative Extension Service will also be open for touring.
