The annual Friends of Noe Valley Garden Tour 2020 is actively looking for gardens to showcase on the tour next May. Over the years most of the gardens have been located in lower Noe Valley around 24th Street. This year we are hoping to showcase some gardens from the hills of Noe Valley including Dolores Heights.
The 2020 Garden Tour will be held on Saturday, May 16th from 10am to 4pm. There are typically 8 -10 gardens on the tour. All types of gardens are encouraged – manicured, wild, vegetable, pet friendly, owner or professionally designed. Around 200-250 people attend the tour viewing the gardens, at their own pace and in any order, with a map that is provided. Entrance to a garden must be through a passage, garage or walkway that does not involve passing through a residence. Prices for tickets are $20 for adults and $16 for seniors 65+. Children under 12 are free. Raffle tickets for a garden makeover are also sold. Proceeds from the Garden Tour are returned to the community through a donation to a beautification project in the neighborhood.
Here is where you come in. Do you or a neighbor have a garden that you think should be considered for the Garden Tour? Don’t be shy! The Garden Tour committee would love to see it. Let us know even if you are unsure. The committee members have lots of ideas and can help you out. Participation in the Garden Tour is actually a really FUN experience!
