A free tour of native gardens in Santa Clara Valley & Peninsula, San Francisco Bay Area

Since 2003, the Bay Area's pioneering native garden tour has showcased gardens featuring California native plants. This community-based tour is free of charge to the public. Each tour features up to 60 gardens, most of them private home gardens, which are open on tour day in a do-it-yourself, open house format.

The gardens on the tour demonstrate reduced water use, reduced chemical and pesticide use, improved habitat, and the unique aesthetic appeal of gardens designed with California native plants. Our website also provides resources to help Bay Area gardeners to “go native” in their own gardens.

On tour day, sponsoring nurseries may conduct native plant sales at select gardens. Part of the proceeds benefit Growing Natives Garden Tour. Please pay by cash or check.
