Share Your Marin-Friendly Garden

The Marin Municipal Water District is looking for a fresh crop of gardens in Marin to feature on the Marin-Friendly Garden Tour on Saturday, May 7, 2016. This free, educational event will showcase beautiful and inspiring gardens that use practices sensitive to our local environment, particularly ones that protect and conserve our precious water resources.

We are looking for a variety of Marin-Friendly gardens, both homegrown and professionally designed and maintained, that incorporate sustainable elements such as low-water-use or native plants, edibles, rain catchment, composting, lawn conversions, graywater systems, and more. This is an excellent opportunity for landscape architects, professionals, and homeowners alike to showcase their gardening talents and successes. The Marin Municipal Water District will provide volunteer support at your garden on the day of the tour to assist with making the event fun and satisfying for everyone.
