Eco-Friendly Garden Tour
Save the date! The Eco-Friendly Garden Tour is scheduled for Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

About the tour

This free, self-guided tour highlights environmentally friendly gardening practices, which reduce waste and pollution, conserve natural resources, and create healthy, productive landscapes that are also beautiful. The Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) is excited to partner with the Sonoma County Water Agency and North Marin Water District to showcase gardens in Sonoma and Marin that demonstrate these objectives and so much more. At each location a homeowner or landscape professional will be available to answer your questions and share their gardening knowledge and experience with you. Handouts and information about environmentally friendly gardening practices will available. 


Gardens are located in Sonoma and Marin Counties. In the MMWD service area gardens are clustered in the San Rafael area. Gardens included on past tours have featured:
  • Native plants
  • Edibles
  • Rainwater catchment
  • Wildlife habitat
  • Recycled materials
