The garden tour unlike all the others returns for its third season. As always this year’s tour features a fascinating blend of gardens that reflect local economy, conservation, good stewardship, homes of production, backyard habitat, home energy creation.
Meet, network, and gain tips from Samish watershed residents who are working to cultivate a healthy, resilient, and vibrant community one garden at a time. Tour homes of production and conservation in "downtown" Bow, featuring beautiful front yard organic vegetable gardens, mini-orchards and back yard chickens to feed family and neighbors on small lots. See how to create a sustainable farm, raise sheep and chickens, create a backyard sanctuary for wildlife and people while also using solar power, learn the benefits of establishing native trees and shrubs along fish bearing streams and river. Learn skills of how to grow a healthy neighborhood as you grow healthy food and protect our native habitat!
