Sustainable Sunday Garden Tours

Please make plans to join us for a series of free Sustainable Garden Tours to be held in the afternoon of the fourth Sunday of the month, May-September (exact times vary as indicated below). All tours are in Blacksburg and you may drop in anytime during the tour timeframe. Light refreshments will be served. Tours are rain or shine, but will be halted in the event of thunder and/or lightning.

When looking for gardens to feature, we sought gardens that would showcase practices from the list of sustainable gardening and landscaping practices we compiled during our 21 Actions for 2021 Campaign. You can find that list of practices here:

The July tours of Arlean Lambert’s residential garden and the Hale Community Garden highlight edible landscaping and fruit and vegetable gardening. Come to either or both gardens anytime during the tour timeframe, Sunday, July 24, 6:00-8:00 pm. Park at the Hale Community Garden at 215 Maywood Street.

Lambert enjoys figs, strawberries, kiwis, nuts, greens, and other edibles — including edible flowers — at her north Blacksburg home.

•September 25, 3-5 pm, Griffiths garden at 2300 Capistrano Street highlighting edible landscaping
