Since 2003, Going Native Garden Tour offered in-person garden visits each spring. Starting in 2020, virtual garden tours are also offered online throughout the year.

Tour volunteers can visit tour gardens throughout the year through a series of Garden Preview events and receive a custom GNGT T-shirt with artwork that changes yearly. Tour volunteers work one 3-hour shift on tour day at one of the gardens either as a docent or as a greeter.

If you live in Santa Clara County or San Mateo County, and California native plants are 70% or more of your garden, we invite you to submit your garden for inclusion in the Going Native Garden Tour 2022. The submission deadline is Sun, Oct 31, 2021, 11:59 pm. See also the How do I submit my garden to be included in the Tour? page.
