Common Grounds Garden Tour

Leave a comment

If you are in the bay area, I highly suggest going on the Common Ground’s 8th Edible Landscaping Tour. I went last year with a good gardening friend. Although the entrance fee is a bit pricey ($35!), I really enjoyed last year’s tour. There was a dizzying array of gardens and they were pretty spread out (from Los Altos to Menlo Park) so you definitely need a car for this tour. Also we were only able to visit about 5 houses out of many, many more before we were exhausted. So when you go to buy your tickets at Common Ground, I would ask which houses meet your interests and hit those first before you tucker out! All of the houses had amazing vegetable gardens, many utilizing the front yards as well as back yards, and many gardens had animals such as ducks, chickens and bees. Also if you have never been in the Common Ground store it is worth checking out!

Unfortunately I can’t make it to this year’s tour. Here is information about the tour:
